    Unusual road traffic accidents


    Unusual road traffic accidents

    Road traffic accidents are not to be taken lightly. The consequences and injuries incurred from an accident on the road are rarely simple or easy to forget.

    At the very least, the physical aftermath of road traffic accidents is likely to be extremely painful. At worst, it can be seriously debilitating, or even fatal.

    There are also some road traffic accidents that seem to defy logical explanation. The following list demonstrates just how unusual road traffic accidents can get.

    First up is a spectacular incident in Chemnitz, Germany, when a young male motorist managed to lodge his car into the roof of a church.

    The man was heading into town when he lost control and suddenly found himself suspended 25 ft in the air following the strange road accident.

    Officers were dumbfounded as to how the car managed to fly 30 metres. The man fortunately escaped without any serious car crash injuries.

    The topic of car accidents that should have caused more serious injuries, ties in nicely with this next story which comes from Lincoln, America.

    As an elderly motorist approached a popular pizza restaurant, he didn’t apply the brakes, and instead simply drove right through the doors.

    Fortunately, and somewhat miraculously, a serious car accident was averted by a strange coincidence. The width of the car was just about the perfect size to seamlessly slip through the doors, without knocking so much as a brick out of place.

    In fact, the driver in question was so unruffled by the experience he calmly remained in his vehicle and ordered a pizza.

    Staying in the United States, a bizarre set of circumstances in 2012 saw a middle aged woman crash two cars within the space of two days.

    The first car accident occurred when she crashed through a wooden fence as the vehicle careered on into a tree and bench.

    Having rented a replacement, she again ran into trouble the next afternoon, crashing into the wall of a building located just three doors down from the site of the original accident.

    If the above demonstrates anything, it’s that you can never be sure what the next road traffic accident is going to be caused by.
