this is correct, the engine gets disabled, and then it gets towed to the junk yard, and its up to the junk yard from there. they are allowed to sell parts off it, and the rest gets crushed, and with this influx of vehicles many are going right to the crusher. the vin number goes into a special category so it can't be put back on the road.
there were also rules about after a certain age they didn't qualify, this should not have qualified, it is a classic, an antique, something, not a clunker.
