When a car that is traveling at a normal rate of speed collides with a car that is stationary, the results can be devastating. The amount of force that is created can make escaping such a crash without injury almost impossible -- for either the moving car or the one that was not moving. If a driver is going speeds that are well above average, however, the devastation can reach another level.

Her 44-year-old friend was not hurt in the accident and the 42-year-old driver of the vehicle remained at the scene to talk with police.
