Maybe you should stop doing so Btw I don't know any page where I could get such images from. Zohar made me think that 90% of Israelis are gay and you made me think that every second bus has an accident in Israel

Here is a derailment that occurred in Seattle yesterday afternoon. No passengers were onboard the train at the time of the derailment.

I guess evey road vehicle should transport people seated and with seatbelts only. Buses should not be allowed to tranport people standing. It is just too dangerous.

Freaky tram accident

BMW in a failed kumite with a tram, but not the usual "head on collision".


Initially I was surprised by the extent of the damage. It's hard to see, but the car crashed backwards. But then it's a BMW... witnesses say this guy was doing over twice the allowed speed limit, and this road is not a highway (there are no barriers).

Whenever a really strange accident happens in Poland, such as "car flew off bridge", it's 90% a BMW (or Opel Calibra).

More pics:





Seems that the driver, who did not survive, was thrown onto the incoming tram backwards, and then dragged for some meters. The front of the tram is slightly damaged.

A note to US readers: this is not to be used against public transport. Nobody was killed or injured aboard the tram (US: trolley?), and the vehicle was hardly damaged.

The BMW drivers in Poland seem forget what the heck they have brain cells for... or they maybe havn't?
