What is the most unusual thing you have ever seen happen to a car in a car accident after impact?
I once saw a car go round in circles then fly up more than 4m to land on a small hill,check out the photo.Luckily the driver and passengers survived mostly with few bruises.
Hello Livingtwentyfirst. I do not remember seeing it, since I was the driver. I was rear ended in a '67 VW beetle. From what I was told we (Gary a friend was the passenger) were heading home along a road El Camino Del Rey between a place called Bonsall and now known as old 395 in North San Diego County. That name means Road of the King.
Any way bad rains and the road was littered with dirt and small to medium rocks. Flat tire, spun 180, wound up facing the opposite way. A '53 Chev I was told rear ended us. The impact was enough to send v-dub down a small hill into a ditch. It caused the v-dub to look like a gable roof a the post between the front door and rear window /\ that kind of shape. V-dub have motors in the back. This one had a souped up van pancake motor = 2180CC. It sheared one cylinder head off at the push rod tubes, broke the transfer case, and kinda' made a mess of things.
The seat I was in broke at the swivel hinge and I flew backwards with the seat at impact. Then the seat hit the back seat causing the direction to reverse. It kind of tried to make my cervical spine do an 'S' and didn't work out. It kinda' wound up straight instead of a gradual and natural curve. Steering wheel broke and was in the gut and hand was cut on ashtray. Damn cigarettes - lol. I don't remember much until waking up at the folks home a week or so later. Both anterograde and retrograde amnesia experienced. That was me and not answering about the car - ooopppsss.
The only other odd thing is for years I couldn't drive down that road. Whenever I got to that spot I would vomit. I have pics of the car somewhere. If I find them I will post them for 'ya. Gary jumped out of the v-dub ran to the other car because it had a fire under the hood. He turned and then told me he was pretty sure I was dead. Well, long story after that . . .
tsmong funny..this may be a different accident this particular one happened in South Africa and i was in a bus that collided with the van..am actually the female in the photo

My scariest thing was discovering my down syndrome son had just swallowed a pinball and a dime. I immediately called 911. He ended up being okay, and has never done it since. That was when he was younger. It was one of the most scary moments he put me through.
