Two roads intersect at an angle of 48 degrees. A car and truck collide at the intersection and leave the scene of the accident. The car travels to the east at 100km/h while the truck goes north at 80 km/h. Fifteen mins after the accident a police helicopter pulls over the car. Twenty mins after the accident a police cruiser pulls over the truck. How far apart are the car and truck at this time?

? Strange because it says the roads intersect at 48deg, but then says that the car goes east and truck goes north. I suppose they can't mean DUE north...? if not though, then is it like|dw:1329329492911:dw|or|dw:1329329539945:dw|???
