    Accident cameras are quite common in some parts, especially where there can be some dispute, they usually keep something like the last 15min of footage in a rolling cycle and you can hit a button to save it or an inbuilt accelerometer will detect a crash and cut off like a black box.

    Lots of commercial companies use them in their fleet vehicles which can help with insurance.

    There are reports that say the meteor was 10 tons before impact with the Earth's atmosphere.

    The estimated dimensions before impact with the atmosphere now stand at:

    ...Based on the duration of the event, it was a very shallow entry. It was larger than the meteor over Indonesia on Oct. 8, 2009. Measurements are still coming in, and a more precise measure of the energy may be available later. The size of the object before hitting the atmosphere was about 49 feet (15 meters) and had a mass of about 7,000 tons...
