Jeepers! How the hell did the driver get out without falling in the hole?

A few years ago there was a big section of the coast highway that just fell off and dropped about 40 feet or so and some poor fellow was in his car in the middle of the part that fell. No injuries. I don't recall if his car was damaged or not.

Actually that car is probably a write-off. The hood is showing signs of buckling at the rad support which means the crumple zone is compromised... the airbag deployed.... I'm betting it was taken to the scrap yard. Lucky lucky driver though.

I don't think Fossil was talking about the car in this pic.

Kinda sad in a way, every time you see one of those Chargers in the air it was the last thing that car ever did. Loved the show though as a kid. I used to have fun with the VCR going frame by frame through the landings. On a lot of them you would get about 3-5 frames of the strut towers collapsing and the body bending up about 15 degrees at the firewall before they would cut to the driving away shot.

Just a big ol' hole,
Tried to swallow it whole,
Beats all you ever saw,
The pavement opened it's maw,
And an airbag was born.

I used to watch it with my stepson when he was little and, truth be told, I wasn't much more than a kid myself.
