Ooh! My turn!

The neighborhood I grew up in was extremely hilly. The hill we lived on had the street bisect it midway up, and we were on the downward side. From the front, our house looked liked a one story, but we had a driveway that ran down the hill to the back, with a walk out patio and all that stuff. The neighbor's drive across the street went up the hill, and their houses were on the crest. Their front door was easily twenty or thirty feet above the top of our attic's roof. The sense you should be getting is that this was a big hill.

One day, we happened to be in our dining room putting together a puzzle with my grandparents, sitting next to a large bay window that looked out over the side hill. Suddenly, a big ol Suburban type crossover truck is hurtling through our field of view, completely taking out a massive old 30 foot Crete Myrtle that managed to slow it enough that the thing bottomed about as it was about to flip over the retaining wall, and caught with the front tires dangling out into space.

The neighbor's kids were visiting, and had buckled their 15 to 20 month old toddler in the back of their truck, facing backward, in his carseat, then went in to grab the rest of their luggage and hug everyone good bye. This kid wiggled out of his seat, and in attempting to crawl over the front seat and out of the car to his parents, managed to climb over shifter, somehow, and knock it in neutral. He's lucky to be alive. I don't think I'll ever leave a child in the car without the E brake on and the keys out of the ignition, ever.

Philbb: ladyfortuna: When I was like, four, my mom left my sister and I in a van outside our church while she went in to get something. My sister being only a few years older than me, somehow knocked the car into neutral and nearly ran it bumped into the brick building.


If she had knocked it into drive (like I did with a vehicle being towed) or reverse, than there might have been an issue.

It was an incline across half a parking lot, enough to get some momentum. There would have been some damage to the van at least, trust me. And possibly the windows of the building if we'd been aimed at them; I don't honestly remember if we were because I was so young.
