Unfortunately I have no pics, but in the mid nineties my 87 Buick Somerset was impaled by a flying parking meter. I still have the meter flags.

That Camry is insane!
My car was parked when hit by the meter. A drunk driver left the roadway (at a high rate of speed) and hit the meter.......it proceeded to fly 75-100 feet through the air and hit my car. If it had happened 45 seconds earlier it would have nailed my friend who had previously been leaning against my car in the same spot!
The meter was full but they didnt let me keep it.the bastards! It would have helped pay for he repairs

Many many years ago, my mom was driving our Pontiac Dustbuster in a blizzard. The wind tore a road sign out of the ground and propelled it at a high rate of speed towards the car, but the only damage (luckily) was a trashed passenger side mirror.

What the...? Your friend is one lucky so and so. Wow. High flying parking meter. Sounds lethal.
Another pic of the camry. Washington State Patrol sez, the guardrail actually saved the dude's life by preventing him (northbound) from crossing any further over and a certain head on with heavy southbound traffic.



You're saying this guy lived! Holy crap, looking at those pics I would have though that the guardrail would have cut him in two.

Well, at least the investigators didn't have to waste time estimating speed on impact ...

yes and the Troopers are all saying it kept him from being killed in a head-on on the wrong way side of the highway. Whoa.

The guardrail, which was completely embedded inside the passenger compartment (see photos below), prevented Haybe from crossing into the southbound lanes and causing a head-on collision.
Haybe was trapped inside the vehicle until medics arrived and were able to extricate him... alive

Serious injuries though.
In one door and out the other
