A friend just bought this boat and kept it on the hard at his parents' farm.

Along comes a Nissan Qashqai on the passing road, driver fiddling with his phone. "I didn't see the turn and suddenly all I could see was a blue canopy" he later explained.

Boat was written off, covered by by the car's insurance, luckily at a price that left the owner without loss. But happy hopes for a boating season was ruined :nonchalance:

Very glad that no one was hurt.

It did remind me of this, though...



Sorry :)

Might be aliasing but where's the arial gone in the second shot?
If it's real then very lucky escape, if it's CS then someone's got too much time on their hands!

The angle of the embankment and the entry point of the car are all wrong.
The car would have entered the boat at the deck and would have had to be travelling at 80mph+ to clear the embankment.
IMHO.

Surely it would have tipped back so the rear of the car was resting on the ground...I call Photoshop

So all you wise guys. I'm not used to be accused of cheating and does not take it lightly.

Can you who are so ever clever please thoroughly explain (not postulate) the evidence of this being fake or Photoshop'ed:

It just looks like the boat has been neatly cut and the car placed in it, especially from the bow picture. Hardly any cracks or splinters, strange!

I didn't say it had been photoshopped, just that it looked very neat! I would have expected the boat to have been smashed to pieces if it was hit by a car. Looks like I was wrong. Strange things happen!
Thanks for posting the other pics, it was interesting to see how they got it out.

BruceK - humble enough or shall I grovel some more?

Apologies to SpiD.

Did I forget to mention I'd failed my Accident Investigation exams?
Now you can see why, I was rubbish.

Look at those pictures in reverse order, I reckon it's an elaborate hoax and what we are looking at is a Quashqi being carefully lowered into the boat ;)

Seriously though, what a freak event and how lucky the driver was to not be seriously injured.

I know the explanation given has caused some wondering as the last bit of road covered before being airborne presumably would have made any normal driver try to act.
Looking at the last pic you see the road being gravel, neatly going along the shed. This driver went from paved road onto gravel almost 70 meters before still not trying to do anything to avoid.

There has been no mentioning of alcolhol et al.
