He's going to need quite a few of them to get himself out of that predicament won't he.

Cheers.

I don't know about the bus being "full", but it could've turned out so bad.

Video shows tractor-trailer nearly crash into school bus full of kids in Medina County.

Thankfully the only injury was a bruised bumper.

Cheers.

A Tesla vehicle using ‘Smart Summon’ appears to crash into a $3.5 million private jet

More money, more problems

That likely is a total loss as I strongly suspect the pressure vessel that is the fuselage got tweaked when it got spun around. Hope Elon has some good insurance for his obviously defective product.

Does anyone else wonder if that failure means it would drive right into the side of a flatbed trailer, because it isn't looking that high?

Hasn't that, allegedly, already happened with a somewhat unfortunate outcome?

US tourists’ unexploded bomb sparks panic at Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport

A family member removed the shell from a backpack and asked a security agent whther it could be placed inside a suitcase, the BBC reported, citing the YNet news.

The official ordered the surrounding area to be evacuated, but another passenger misunderstood and began shouting, “Terrorists shooting.” That sent panic throughout the terminal.

Here's a double involving a couple of tip trucks with dog trailers attached combined with excessive speed. :-O

You get it there early or you're fired! or If I speed I can get another load in before I time out.

Is that really the M5???
All of the roads i've ever driven on here in Australia we drive on the left hand side- they are all driving on the right hand side of the road.
Which means not only is the truck driver an idiot for not watching what's going on in front of them, but so is the car driver for travelling slowly in the fast lane- the truck in the centre lane isn't wasting any time going past them.

Some of those dashcams, like mobile phones, show their footage as if you're looking into a mirror.

Yeah, but i still just can't get my head around it- i put myself in the dashcam vehicle looking forward- and everyone is on the wrong side of the road.
Major headache.

Either way- dashcam driver is an idiot for going so slow in the fast lane (keeping left unless overtaking is actually a road rule), and the truck driver is an even bigger idiot for not paying attention to what is right in front of them.

Well it was bound to happen with this silly idea.

15 People Injured After Pub Bike Overturns in Atlanta, Driver Charged with DUI.

Police say 15 people were injured after a "Pedal Pub" overturned while operating in Atlanta on Saturday.

The incident occurred around 6:30 p.m. local time near W Peachtree St and 14th St NE when the electric bike "tipped over while making a turn" with all 15 people on board, according to the Atlanta Police Department.

The driver of the electric bike has since been arrested and charged with driving under the influence and a business permit violation, the department said in its statement on Sunday.

Two people were listed in critical condition and three people were listed in serious condition following the single-vehicle crash, Atlanta Fire & Rescue spokesperson Alyssa Richardson said in an email, per NBC News. Another 10 suffered minor injuries, she added.....

Man crashes his classic $1m supercar.



There was no mention on the condition of the palm tree.
