The culprit's vehicle.
She apparently had her eight year old daughter in the front passenger seat. Thankfully, from what I was told by the reporting officer, both mother and daughter are OK, thanks at least in part to the vehicle they were in. I'm not worse off than I am, at least in part to being fully geared up. Not gonna play the ATGATT nazi card, but there's not much doubt it saved me a lot of trauma.
Some stuff I was able to rescue from the top case.
