Low profile tyres, probably stretched onto wider rims, mandatory 50 psi in them, what could possibly go wrong..????

That is true.... they always over-pressure tyres here. I tried to measure mine on the bike after I got a new tyre and it blew the gauge to pieces!

Having hit a power pole I would have expected to see a very dented front end.  Must have been going like a 'bat out of he(double hockey sticks)' to have done as much damage as in the photo. 

The damage suggests, to me, that the vehicle hit something quite low on the nearside and it then flipped over and hit the pole roof first. That's where the heavy impact seem to be.

When I take my Forza in for a service I say don't check the tyre pressures , I have a gauge and check the pressures every week. If I go off for a coffee and get told ' Bike done ' on getting home I re check after tyres have cooled down.

Yeah I do my bike and the Mrs weekly, we both have smaller bikes and there seems to be a regular loss of a psi or two each week.....apart from when we have had some puncture or tyre work, when 50psi would not be unusual. Could have taken my bloody eye out the time it blew my gauge apart.

Must have been a really poor quality gauge, sounds like it did you favour by blowing itself to bits.

Noted  already the race  wheels   and  guess the white  tailgate is  black with soot.........but my main concern is...............is  the powerpole  ok?

If you read the article you would not have to guess.

 

The tailgate aint black from diesel soot.
