Nothing is as fascinating as an unexplained accident

New batch of strange mis-happenings, weird situations, and often maddeningly mysterious wrecks, where we keep asking ourselves: "How on earth could that happen?"

Are you in a huge hurry? Drive your car straight into the subway (just make sure it can fit in some tight places):

Surprise! Say a little prayer, thanking your windshield:





The "flying" manhole lids could also present a problem:



A giant fork falling out of the sky? Well, an urban art, actually:

This guy may cause some serious accidents. I hope he realizes that -




A Moment Before...





Admittedly, the picture above is almost certainly the truck being towed. Still, it's pretty creepy.

Sunk... or Buried!

Oh, the sense of impending sinking! This car is doomed -



The following picture was sent to us by Edo Engel. He says: "During the night, a major water pipe below the pavement cracked. Since the soil in our area is sandy, the sand was flushed away through the pipe quite easily, creating an ever expanding cavity" -



More sinkholes:




Police are not immune... -



Blondes are definitely not immune... -



The following shots were probably staged, but who knows? maybe it's an amazing reality:









Why is this car so dirty? -






Idiot Parking

These guys couldn't even park a bicycle, it seems:











Parking turned into a nightmare:



You might have seen this picture before - but it's worth another look: this seems simply impossible -



Similarly masterful parking can be observed here:




Vintage parking oops! situation:
"This Could Happen to You!"




Heavy machinery can end up in a heavy, heavy trouble

Want to escape the plight of motorway whatsoever? Attach a jet engine to your sub-compact and go frolic in the desert:




But be aware about the catastrophic results that others achieved with the similar set-up (even ending up in a Darwin Stupidity Award listings): Read the full story here!
