Traffic accidents are a tragedy that no one is guaranteed to avoid. Photographer Nicolai Howalt takes viewers into scenes revealing the horrific consequences of crashes in the series "Car Crash Studies," which documents the interior and exterior states of vehicles after they have been through an accident. While it may be uncomfortable to view collapsed surfaces and shattered windshields caused by real collisions, the images are a reminder to always adhere to safe driving.
