Jeep Hit by Tornado

Wouldn't have wanted to be storm chasing in this Jeep 4x4. This unfortunate Jeep vehicle was caught up in a powerful tornado and smashed so it's hardly recognizable as a car.

Eighty people died from this tornado. You can find out more about this deadly twister here: www.crh.noaa.gov/ict/udall/udall.php

Interesting comparison to a new Jeep Wrangler (JK) that was picked up and tossed 100 feet by a tornado: www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=59514

I cleaned up the background a bit - it was showing some sort of water damage.
