    And if that happened yesterday, Friday the 13th, that`d be great. But I doubt it.

    Some people got hurt by that thing, so I feel like kind of a bad person for laughing really REALLY hard. It just fit so snugly in that trunk; who knew a Taurus had that much space?? :-D

    It`s a safe bet that whoever owns the wrecking ball (the city, or a private contractor) would pay for damages. Otherwise they risk getting sued by the car`s owner.

    My guess is the wrecking ball ran into the bumper unlatching the boot from the locking mechanism causing the boot to spring up and the ball to jump into the boot hold area very cleaver, I would like to see an action replay tho

    Oh, this happened in my home town. All my cousins and my two uncles were there to see it. My uncle Bill, (yes I know, wierd name right? It like saying I have an uncle named Bob)is freinds with the guy who got his car destroyed, and he said that when it hit him, he was so confused because when he looked back there wasn`t a car there.

    I may be missing something, but I think that 1.5 tons (beginning of the video) != 1500 pounds (just before the cop). I thought 1500 kilos = 1.5 tons. Does the imperial system have a different definition of ton or something?
    If not, ha ha stupid ppl get ur measurements right lol.

    Funny thing is, it`s hard to gauge weight, and I`d probably have to fight the impulse to go and stop it.

    --
    1.5 tons = 700 kilos
    1 ton = 2000 pounds

    Does that answer your question?

    it was a good thing that the ball was stopped by the trunk of the car, or it would have caused more damage. It does fit snugly though.

    ok, wait a minute.... how the... three people hurt?! dont tell me they tried to stop the damn thing.
    or no wait even better. they tried running away from it along its intended path like in the cartoons instead of simply stepping to the side like smart folk. sigh.
