First time I ever heard of some one surviving a head on into a tower.
Even in a small trainer they are going to be doing better than 80 to 100
MPH. That's an awfully quick stop in a very short distance...unless it
was an ultralight. Even then I have a series of an ultralight hanging
off the roof of a shed and the pilot did not survive.
