thesharkman: The comments in the article are entertaining as well.


I love how several auto engineering experts there have concluded exactly what caused this accident.

Xcott: From the comments:

In the picture it looks like the GPS navigation app system is out of line. It is clear that caused the drift to the right because there is no skid or brake marks. This can happen when the system is not in sync with the eyes and hand control system.

I know that whenever my GPS display is rotated a few degrees, I end up driving right into a house.


The hell? Do people really think GPS systems drive the cars?

Self-driving cars, like the google maps cars?  Yes.
This obviously is a new car.  Look at the image again.

Honestly, this is what happens when you fight the central planning office. You didn't want to let yor house be bulldozed for that bypass, fine they build it on top of your house and increasingly improbable things start happening, cars falling on you, sofas popping in and out of existence, missiles turning into humpback whales.

Excuse me, I need some beer and peanuts, I feel a teleportation is in my near future.

The "mechanical problem" was a broken breathalizer bypass.

Over the sidewalk, across the lawn, onto the neighbor's roof: Nothing but air.

Frankenstorm: "There was a gentleman that was in the house that was home at the time, but he was not hurt," Glendale Fire Department spokesman Carlos Guerrero said.

But was the man at home?


At least we know that the house was home.

On the plus side, sometimes this leads to you learning to fly. Maybe that's what the driver was attempting when he forgot to not hit the ground.

That. I hate driving in Glendale.

I live here though, so it's largely unavoidable.

Sure, maybe it really was a mechanical problem. But an article on cnn about the same incident says this:

"Neighbors told officers Saturday's incident was the second time the man crashed into a neighbor's house while trying to drive down his driveway "

See that second word from the story?
▶ A Glendale man lost control of his vehicle Saturday, sending the car down an embankment and landing on a neighbor's roof.◀

Great place to park if you're anticipating a flood.  Either that or you have a vindictive girl friend who can't see over the top of the garage.
 
2013-03-24 01:41:30 PM
Sadly, he forgot how many Unique Jumps he needed and wasn't paying attention when he landed.

No I didn't see that.  I looked at the picture and decided to make a silly joke.

FarkingReading: Ah, but did she swallow before the crash?


Unknown. But he did make it fly.

The elderly driver was unable to locate a farmer's market that met his schedule, so he chose the next best thing.

I can't POSSIBLY be the first one here to note that this guy in his late 60's has a smoking hot 20 year old Russian wife.

Old and rich. That's a Cadillac.

Yep...probably has one of the new 400HP ones and thought he was driving a sports car.

Good old unintended acceleration, the preferred mode of driving for the mythical overzealous staffer.

Go ahead, blame the car, as if it magically set itself to full throttle and somehow disabled the brakes, which are not, at their very core, controlled by electronics or anything more complex fluid pressure. The chances of both things happening at once, then mysteriously correcting themselves after the crash are, well, zero. Not to mention that there's no car on earth, including the 1200 horsepower Bugatti Veyron, that can overpower its own brakes.

But go ahead, blame the car, try to sue GM, spend a ton of money, all so you don't have to feel like an idiot for being too old/stupid/distracted to know which pedal you're stomping on.

thamike: DeerNuts: The hell? Do people really think GPS systems drive the cars?

My GPS thinks I'm gay.


Well, put in the address of the building NEXT to the gay bar, and figure out how to get the rest of the way there on your own.

I'm sure the mechanical issue was some dipshiat couldn't eat their foot on the brake in time.
