    Yes, I see and I can hear the noise of the 'grinding'.
    I can't give you a lot of context. It is from a title of a newspaper article ("Officer killed in grinding car crash")
    The car in the picture looked like a complete write-off.

    Actually, the question was asked by a native speaker in the German forum who wanted to have a good translation in German. The thing is I can't find a good German expression if I don't get the exact idea.

    Thanks for the article. I still don't know how to translate it but I get the idea. (The problem is that we probably don't have a word in German expressing all that.)
