About thirty miles from me. Warren County N.J. Looks like a 64 that someone in addition to the Ghostbusters conversion added 59 Cadillac fins a first. Note pro car has New York tags but Suburban NJ tags. Looks like Suburban driver had trailer brakes set too low when he hit brakes trailer with heavier pro car pushed Suburban jacknifeing the whole rig into pickups front end. Pro car appears to have severe frame damage left front.

As Kurt has already indicated, it the coach was totaled, it was a wreck before the accident and no loss thereafter.

You look threw the 31 pictures the 64 came out the best. There splice job on the fenders must not have been much as both of them split. The one that took it in the shorts was the designed to crumple ford. There went 50 grand.
