Car Wrapped Around RR pole

Along I-57 going southbound, between exits 10 & 12, in a field off to the right, there is a car that is wrapped completely around a RR pole, front bumper touching back bumper. Not sure if its left over from some wreck, but as there are no tracks there, its just sitting randomly in a field.

May 2009: Reported "No longer there. Local said they removed it because it was rusted and unrecognizable."
