Well that would be enough to send most people screaming from the vehicle Shertim however, with regards to the EDR :-
It records the speed of the vehicle at time of 'incident' and also whether and how far the driver was depressing the accelerator. The manual calls this a 'non-trivial' incident by the way. (Pages 45-46 of the Operating Information Manual).
From my reading of how it works (from this forum but it was at least 6 months ago since I read), the EDR is located in the front passengers door and mostly sits 'dormant' but recording but continues to rewrite over.
However, at 'incident' time (and I believe, although I stand to be corrected) once the air bags deploy, it locks down its last 30 seconds (?) perhaps 60 seconds of data for review by accident/insurance investigators.
ETA: He says he wasn't texting nor speeding at time of incident. Well we'll have to take his word on the texting bizzo but the EDR will provide real data on the speed and acceleration of the SRT at the time.
Such a friggen waste of a beautiful vehicle.
