Look at the license plates. While I wouldn't rule Michigan out entirely, it's not really likely. Both the truck and Corvette have white colored license plates, which, IIRC, Michigan's rarely, if ever, were.

What I see of the typeface rules out Virginia, besides, ours seemed to alternate between black and white. New York, New Jersey, and California would also be out. It could be Illinois, maybe.

My, but the vehicle mix is very different here. If this were a modern accident scene, all three of the cars in the picture could well be trucks of some sort.

1967-1968 Michigan plates were dark blue with yellow letters. I have a couple of them on hand
This appears to be at least a few years after that considering the condition of the front bumper of the truck, but who knows.

Looks like a '68-70 Vette in the background.

The white background tags might be Ohio. I think '67 Ohio tags were white/red. I can't remember what '68 Ohio tags were. '69 Ohio tags were white/blue. They could also be '70 Ohio tags. Those are Ohio State Buckeye colors, Scarlet letters over Gray background.

I saw this quite some time ago. I wish I could find another Camaro wreck that I had seen. It was a 69 literly wrapped around a telephone pole and they cut the pole but the part that the car was wrapped around is still in the car. It was displayed on top of some building at a junk yard. Legend has it that the people were still inside.

68 Ohio plates are white with red letters
