Gruesome pictures of Nikki Catsouras also known as Porsche
Girl are the most famous car crash photos ever. There are many
car crashes happening on the road every day and many of them are horrific. If
you search the internet just a little bit, you will find countless numbers of
gory death pictures of bloody accidents on the road. But none of these dead
people grew to be as famous as Porsche Girl Nikki Catsouras. Why? Read on to
Nikki Catsouras Car Crash – What Exactly Happened
Nicole Catsouras was a good looking young girl. She was 18
year old when she had a little argument because she was doing drugs (cocaine).
Her dad, Christos Catsouras may have yelled at her that day after he found out
and took the car keys from her car away. As a result, Nikki Catsouras stole
keys from his $150k Porsche Carrera, took it on a high way and not having
enough driving experience, she was plowing it down at excess of 100 miles per
Porsche she was driving was capable of reaching high speeds
and Nikki took advantage of it. She was going way over speed limit when she hit
a Honda car that was driving down the highway at 70 mph nearly killing the
people inside. The clip made Nikki Catsouras loose control, her fast moving
Porsche got off the highway just about missing random people there and crashed
full speed into a concrete toll booth.
Nikki Catsouras died instantly. She basically had half of
her head decapitated as it got caught between solid concrete and a Porsche
speeding at more than 100 mph. Needless to say, Nikki catsouras who was
previously a hot chick, turned into a bloody mess with head completely
destroyed and hanging over demolished car. Nikki’s brain was all over the place
and her blood filled up the ground mixing itself with automobiles fluids. It
was not a pretty sight.
Nikki Catsouras Death Pictures
The police were called on the scene and did what they always
do – took pictures of the car crash. As she hit that toll booth at a high
speed, her death pictures look extremely horrific, but nothing that highway
patrols would not deal with on daily basis. However there was something special
about Nikki Catsouras – you don’t always see a super hot blonde girl destroyed
like this. Typically hot blonds play cat and mouse games, teasing you for
personal amusement, and here she was, completely owned.
As the death pictures were being processed, one of the
Californian Highway Patrol Officers dealing with Nikki Catsouras’ death emailed
the pictures to his colleague and in all that mess they were leaked outside of
the police department and once they were out of there, they hit the net big and
that’s how the whole Porsche Girl phenomenon started.
Porsche Girl was Born
One website after another was posting pictures of Nikki
Catsouras before and after the crash. The after pictures were so gory that it
never failed to shock anyone who saw them. Porsche Girl grew into massive
phenomenon overnight and continued to grow making unaware people sick to their
Troubles started when mean kids thought it was funny to
taunt The Catsouras with pictures of bloodied Nikki Catsouras. Needless to say,
The Catsouras were devastated form loss of their beautiful teenage daughter,
but what’s more, she died in such a horrific way, that they didn’t even want to
admit her mom to her after she’d crashed that Porsche. The sight of her was so
terrible, everyone assumed her family best not see it. That’s not what mean
internet kids thought.
Following the growth of Porsche Girl phenomenon, The
Catsouras started receiving emails camouflaged as something else, but
containing pictures of Nikki Catsouras’ death. Her dad Christos is a real
estate agent (that’s why he was driving a $150 000 worth of Porsche Carrera) so
they were sending emails that were made to sound as if coming from a client
interested in byuing a real estate property, but after opening, there was a
picture of his little girl Nikki Catsouras dead.
Other meanies created profiles on social networking sites like
MySpace that pretended to be made in honor of a beautiful Nikki Catsouras.
These profiles features slide shows that started with the play back of images
from her happy days and went on with beautiful pictures of Nikki Catsouras but
then turned into a bad joke by displaying those horrific pictures of her death.
Having lots of money, Christos Catsouras hired company
Defender to help remove Nikki Catsouras Car Crash Photos from the net
and they were almost able to eliminate them completely. One site after another
was taking them down and soon enough they’d become a hard to find commodity.
Things took an unexpected turn on March 21, 2008 when The Catsouras lost the lawsuit
they had filed against the California Highway Patrol for leaking the photos.
Porsche Girl Photos Controversy
Despite extremely gory nature of the Porsche Girl Photos,
many people feel that Nikki Catsouras asked for it herself. She was the one who
disobeyed her father, she was the one who was speeding was over speed limit on
the highway and she was the one who crashed into another car and almost killed
pedestrians. Seeing a teenage girl this destroyed normally calls for sorry
feelings and many people do. However, it was Nikki
Catsouras who endangered others by her reckless driving and many
people say it’s only good she was killed before she killed somebody else,
The Porsche Girl dispute continues. There is hardly any
middle ground. People either totally hate everyone who posts these pictures for
being too cruel, or people think those pictures should be mandatory in driving
classes to make sure teenagers sober up and start acting responsively when
driving a car.
I agree with one thing – there was no need to taunt The
Catsouras with pictures of their daughter’s death. That was stupid and should
never have taken place. However these pictures should be seen. It was plain and
simple the fault of Nikki Catsouras and nobody else. Had she been responsible
and not reckless, there would naver have been any Porsche Girl.
Porsche Girl Nikki Catsouras Car Crash Photos
The infamous Porsche Girl car crash pictures are below. You
can comment on each photo from the gallery individually. Nikki Catsouras is
dead and can not be brought back. I am a firm believer that she still can help
others. Yes, these pictures are tragic and she did die a terrible death, but if
there are any pictures that can help stop inexperienced drivers from speeding
and endangering other’s it’s these Nicole Catsouras car crash photos. Who would
have thought you’d mean so much, even after your orrible death, Porsche Girl.
UPDATED:The family of an Orange County teen killed in a 2006 car
accident has reached a $2.37million settlement in a lawsuit against the
California Highway Patrol over graphic crash photos that were leaked by the
The photos, taken by CHP investigators at the crash site,
show 18-year-old Nicole 'Nikki' Catsouras maimed and nearly decapitated in her
father's mangled Porsche.
Pictures of the gruesome scene, never intended for public
release, were leaked by two highway patrol dispatchers and quickly spread
The LA Times originally reported the settlement.
Keith Bremer, an attorney for the Ladera Ranch family, told the
newspaper: 'This has been a long
journey.' The family, through Bremer, declined to comment on Monday.
As part of the settlement, Bremer said the CHP agreed to
cooperate with the family in fighting to remove the images that can still be
found on the Internet. No other details were revealed.
An Orange County Superior Court judge initially dismissed
the family's lawsuit, concluding that the agency had not breached any legal
duty to the family. At the time, the law did not recognize the right of family
members to sue for invasion of privacy involving photos of the dead.
In 2010, the 4th District Court of Appeal reversed the
decision, ruling that surviving family members have a right to sue for invasion
of privacy in such cases.
Catsouras crashed after taking her father's car without
permission, accelerating to speeds above 100mph on State Route 241 in south
Orange County. She clipped another car and slammed into a toll booth.
The young woman was so badly disfigured her family hadn't
been allowed to see her body after the crash, but the photos began
proliferating on the Internet, appearing on thousands of websites.
On many of the sites, Catsouras was dubbed 'Porsche girl'
and mocked as a spoiled rich girl who deserved to die. Anonymous taunting
messages were also sent to the family's home.
Over the years, the family has gone through extended efforts to
find ways to remove the photos. But as soon as the images were taken down on
some sites, they would sprout up elsewhere.
In a statement from their attorney, the family said it hopes
this case will help others who get caught up in such nightmares. And for the
Catsouras family, the settlement might finally allow them some closure.
'I think they can finally put this chapter behind them,'
Bremer told the Times.
