    The damage to the steering wheel was caused by the patient, I assume?

    You're right. The damage to the steering wheel was caused by the casualty impacting with the wheel.

    You soon appreciate the force of the impact when you consider that seat belts are compulsory over here and the casualty was wearing one!
    She still managed to impact at quite a fast pace...

    Sorry, lutan, got ahead of myself up there!

    Looks like the driver would have benefited from not being there, as well!

    Almost looks like it used to be a Saab. No airbags?
