This 1996 Chrysler Sebring sustained heavy front end damage...
...while the 2007 GMC Yukon was hardly damaged.
Airbags in Beebe's vehicle deployed. (The shattered windshield on the passenger's side was allegedly caused when passenger Michelle Henry had her foot propped on the dashboard when the accident occurred).
Beebe's vehicle was recovered by Fawbush Wrecker Service.
