This Guy's Day Could Have Been A Lot Worse If It Weren't For His Sunroof
How does a massive telephone pole just fall like this?
This freak accident not only raises a lot of questions but makes me want to avoid visiting China all together. How in the world did a massive telephone pole suddenly fall onto the street like this? Was it installed poorly? Was it being installed and was hoisted up by a crane, at which point the crane malfunctioned or the crane operator made a grave error, resulting in the pole coming down and crushing an unsuspecting driver's Audi A3? How in the world did this happen?!
Luckily no one was injured in this terrible accident, and had it not been for the Audi's sunroof the driver would have been trapped inside the car for a terribly long time. The pole struck the Audi by the A-pillar, which meant that it squarely landed right above the driver's shins. Fortunately, the structure of the car was able to support the weight of the pole (though probably not the entire weight of the pole depending on how the ends are supported) so that it didn't crush the driver's legs.
