Hyundai Outbrakes Lamborghini. Allegedly.

SEATTLE – Lamborghinis may be faster out of the gate, but it appears that Hyundai SUVs may have the edge when it comes to braking, at least in one instance. Motorist Kelly Davis snapped this picture of a traffic accident on Interstate 5 near Seattle Monday morning. The Hyundai Santa Fe hit the brakes in traffic, and the Lamborghini behind it wasn’t able to stop that quickly, sliding under the Hyundai. No one was hurt in the accident.
Yes, well, someone’s pride sure got dinged. [Thanks to Don1967 for the link]

No rear end deformation, no debris, no marks on the road..... Why isn't anyone wondering if the idiotic SUV owner reversed up and on top of the Lambo from dead stop? I've seen one accident like this at lights and it was because the SUV owner put the car into Park to wait at lights and then selected Reverse (thinking they'd selected Netural and could move once for Drive). Bam.
Hyundai driver: "You owe me a new bumper and a new gas tank! And...and dinner, at least, and probably a movie!"
I'd be miffed about the additional dents in the rear quarter panel caused by swinging the Lambo-door open. Not surprising - I saw a Chevy Beretta scoop up a Taurus once the same way. All you need is a slopey-front fascia to wedge under a lightly-sprung, braking vehicle in front.
