Yeet, now that I posted Izzy's biography, one of those mentioned is her scar on the left cheek from a accident. I din't give clear details on it so you'll need to visualize what's going to happen in this chapter. Also if you notice that Sayuri said "A broken right arm", yes, TJ's R33 GT-R was rammed so hard by the drunk driver and he was gripping the wheel (very) tightly (to regain control), the truck's front hits TJ's righty as he tries to unlock or open the door.
Now honestly, writing that scenario was the least uh "intense" thing I can think of honestly. Guns and bullets won't count, and car accidents are one of the 99% cause of deaths to come, the answer how "T.J." survived the crash is him being durable due to standing up for himself over the years and having good health that time. And the "Devil R" moniker is a reference to Wangan Midnight's Nissan 240Z named as the "Devil Z" by its previous owners due to accidents and deaths, the main car driven by Akio throughout the series. For Izzy's uncle to call it as the "Devil R"/"Devil GT-R" is how he got few accidents on the car and got out with no scratches or a slight broken (insert body-part) thing, and kept restoring it to 100% mint condition over-and-over.
--> 10 years ago, a 10 year-old Izyia was in Uncle TJ's 1998 Nissan Skyline GT-R and on the way to back to his house (fetching her home after school), he was driving on normal speeds until someone rams the back of his car, he steps on it and a car-chase ensues. TJ doesn't know what the driver's motive is, and the driver behind him goes more than ramming the back but also harming himself and his niece, Izyia. The driver rams the R33 so hard it damaged the car until it was totaled, it heavily injured both TJ and Izyia, Izyia wakes up and was the first to get out while TJ wasn't (as he was stuck to the driver's seat, with the seatbelt on) but she hides behind the car's rear side with her ears covered, and told to run, the driver grabs a shotgun from the Mitsubishi Strada, and pumping it before pointing it to the gaijin's head. Izyia hid behind the rear side of the car until someone came to help them - Kaji A. Fujiwara. Kaji stops the drunk driver from killing TJ and his niece, one shot was fired and he called out the cops, some locals to help, and then a ambulance. Izyia had a scar on the left cheek, though it was a minor cut but it made her cry, and was eventually treated to the hospital hours later after the crash, even his uncle as well. TJ thought to himself he was gonna die for real at that moment but then saved by a miracle, Izyia had questions why that happened, her uncle cannot answer.
[Izzy was wearing her school uniform during the crash. TJ doesn't have any guns in the car but important documents only, and he picked her up after school.]
(5 PM, somewhere in Japan, after the car was totaled)
TJ: Izzy, run! *trying to unbuckle from the seat*
TJ: I said go!
Go somewhere safe and hide!
Izyia: Okay...! *the girl runs off, but to the car's rear side*
*the drunk man pumps his sawed-off, walking to TJ's car*
TJ: What do you want...my life?
Go ahead, finish me off!
*the guy points it to TJ's head*
TJ: I guess this is it, right Jacobsen? *doing the sign-of-the-cross before closing his eyes*
*Izyia looks at her face, seeing the Cross-shaped scar and bleeding, crying softly*
*Izyia leans to peak*
*Kaji steps on his car's pedal, hitting the armed driver and knocking him out but the trigger was pulled*
Kaji: Don't worry, I'm here to help TJ.
TJ: Kaji..? *still trapped on the driver side*
Kaji: I got your niece, she's safe. *Izyia behind him*
Izyia, you and your uncle are going to be okay.
*sounds of police sirens and an ambulance coming to the rescue*
TJ: God...damn... *finally unbuckled the seatbelt*
*TJ getting out of the car and falling down*
*Kaji helping TJ, assisted to walking*
Kaji: Looks messed up, I'm sorry.
Planning on restoring it?
TJ: I think so, I'm naming that scrap as "Devil-R"
(When few found out about the accident)
Eitou: How is TJ?
Sayuri: Not good, wounded bad, at least our daughter's safe.
A broken right arm, and I won't look at that.
Eitou: Who did this?
Sayuri: A drunk guy but he's under police custody, reports say he totaled TJ's car.
Eitou: That's just awful, TJ did nothing at all, he was just picking up Izyia from school.
--> Even at her 17 y/o self after 7 years go by, Izyia still gets traumas, and very few nightmares of the crash. The R33 GT-R 10 years ago, was then later on restored and further sold to a different owner (and now in a Sunny Yellow color, and fitted with a 400R bodykit), TJ knew if he drives that thing again and hitting 1st gear to hear the RB26DETT roar - the old accident flashes back inside his thoughts. Both the accident and the sold car gave the two something they cannot run from, TJ doesn't know if the guy who held him at gunpoint with a shotgun is dead or changed for good. TJ warned the current owner of the car when they talked. TJ called that R33 as the "Devil R", that only means that past traumas doesn't go away fast that easily, but the car still handled as it was before and the old accident was long forgotten once the car was no longer in TJ's hands. As of now, the "Devil R" is roaming the streets freely which is driven by the new owner, Izyia who has moved on the accident and finally accepted the scar on her cheek (which took her a long time to think of it), and TJ thinking of a new project car.
(Conversation between a unknown buyer, about to let the car go, his workshop around 1 PM)
TJ: You see this thing here? *slaps roof of car*
Scars from a accident 10 years ago, and it almost cost the life of mine and my niece's.
Not stock, and handles well, lots of aftermarket parts on, some Sparco seats on there, and a on-point rollcage for safety, a 400R bodykit.
Guy: Ah I see, why'd you sell it though?
It looks so well-done, and looking like the 400R! *looking at the kit and Nismo 19" rims*
TJ: It scares the shit out of me, fucking Devil-R.
Guy: Devil R?
TJ: "Devil R" that's what I called it before, the devil takes many forms and I'm pretty sure, hell if it takes the form of a car.
Guy: Come on T-kun, its like the Devil-Z, many accidents but one man was able to tame it.
Look at it man, look how many miles you've driven on it!
TJ: I'll sell this over for 100 000 yen, she still handles well and tuned it more than 300HP. (Reaching 545 to be exact)
Here's the paper's for it. *handing it over*
Guy: I am happy to buy this one, the deal is very nice too.
TJ: Thank you, hopefully you'll take care of her.

Not tragic enough?
