"QUANTUM SHOT" #696
Link - by Avi Abrams



Nothing is as fascinating as an unexplained accident...
- Weirdest Accidents, Part 6 -


Indeed, every picture here is an unopened book of driver's angst, remorse and often complete confusion. Here is the fresh installment in our on-going "Accidents Big and Small" series, full of mystifying and bizarre accidents, mostly suffered by vehicles on the ground (which is slightly more reassuring than accidents in the air, see our "Airplane Oops!" page).

We'll start with some futuristic accidents (car accidents in the future):



(see the whole covers here and here)

This is almost art: The Lake Dance -



Soft (hard) landing? -





Bad drivers? Maybe this bunch:






What happened here?

In every case, there is a bit of a mystery. See for yourself:



















Did he get distracted by what's happening at his right? -

Holes vs. Cars -







Clearly, this moose has seen too much (and knows something we don't):



Seems like there was no driver inside (lucky guy):






Not a scratch on this car! -



Traffic signs vs. cars:





The signs says ironically: "Your speed should be reasonable". Well....

The 2010 Chilean Earthquake spelled doom for many cars:

Russian Crane trucks hate PT Cruisers:



Could it be a private vendetta? -



A can-opener:




Not easily fixed:



More pics and info on this one - here. Apparently, the driver noticed that there is no bridge a trifle too late:

We only hope that this is an ad campaign:





Intentional photo-bomb? -

UPDATE: Well, looks like this is a real thing -



More cliff-hangers:







Chain reactions:




Fire brigades (& police vehicles) are no exception when it comes to accidents: $750,000 truck ruined - more info:





Hug me. Kiss me -



Hamsters (chipmunks)! Yea, blame it all on hamsters! -



Cows are upset (anyone can say "milkshake"?):



This is not milk:



-----

Extreme Flying



Did we say "flying"? Yes, unfortunately, some of cars (and their drivers) take to the air:





Get on your knees, and pray! -


(original unknown)

Something epic ("Death Proof" movie):



Extreme swimming (a flooding in Turkey):


(image via)

Extreme off-roading. See more awesome pictures at our page:



-----

Parking with a Vengeance









Waiting... waiting for it to happen:



Nobody perfect:




"This is my Hummer - I make the rules" (parking it, just as it is written - we were warned!):



Hummers lead hard life, too:



Handicapped? Never heard o'em:



Stuck:

"Ask me how some of these accidents happened. I'll tell ya.":

I think the first pic in the "Extreme flying" was from the movie the Blues Brothers... that looks like the Chicago lakefront with Lake Michigan and the car from the film

Hello, here is blog http://www.2m40.com/ which is (more or less) dedicated to all accidents located in a precise tunnel on the prestigious Champs Elysées in Paris.

The service in charge of the Culture doesn't want to put huge traffic signs in front of the Arc de Triomphe.

The "mystery yacht+car / what happened here" scene is from Galveston after hurricane Ike. Google these two, you'll find it around page 11, from a different angle - I just saw it on Discovery, that's how I know...
