Toyota saves another life -Bad car wreck i witnessed with pics

So last week i was in las vegas. Took a day trip with my buddy on saturday to the grand canyon, heading down 93S which is a two lane split road with the median (desert) in the middle. So we're doing about 80 heading down this straight road when all of a sudden, about 300 feet in front of us a car coming at us swerves into the median and goes about 30 feet into the air rolling like crazy, parts flying everywhere, huge dust cloud. I mean there were parts everywhere, by far the worst car accident i have ever seen in my life, and it was right in front of us. So we immediately pull over (along with the two cars that were in front of us), and everyone goes running towards the car. I was sure someone was dead, come to find out that when we ran up there was two people coming out fo the car perfectly fine (the two asian kids in the pic). Thank god everyone was okay. I have never seen an accident before where the engine comes out fo the car.
here are the pics (this is after we cleaned everything up and out of the road). Toyota, or what is left of it anyways:

Damn! Glad they were ok. Do you know what caused it? Looks like the spare blew out.

Least it wasn't a sports car, they'd be road dust.

I have been really impressed with toyota safety inside the cage. My son recently wrecked my 05 tundra, pretty bad spin out on rainy highway, and destroyed the front engine area and bed but he and his pregnant wife were not injured in the cab.
