Belmont Police report:
BPD&BFD respond to car on a pole at Hittinger st. No injuries.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
Or have we seen a lot of cars not on all 4 tires this week?
...we finish out the week without anyone trying to top this one.
he probably turned at the last second to avoid that fire truck which is clearly in the wrong lane.
Since this is in Belmont are we sure this isn't one of Mitt's car elevators at work?
I'm not sure that a professional stunt driver could accomplish that one time in one hundred attempts.
check yourselves before you wreck yourselves, people.
is that the hack should not damage nor cause harm - not sure if this would qualify.
did a hack off-campus?
I don't know if that's the latest one.
So not Mitt's car.
Not surprised. Despite the nice weather, traffic has been particularly awful this week. People have been doing all kinds of stupid things like driving and passing in bike lanes. This was probably one of those drivers avoiding the backups on Rt.2/16 by cutting through Brighton St./Hittinger st. in Belmont and getting antsy.
First, I hope that everyone will recover.
Second, WTF?? I can't imagine any driving maneuvers that even result in this...it's actually impressive that a car can get into that position and not take out the pole.
It's a high quality Belmont stake.
This pole has a "guy wire", which is a support wire that goes diagonally from the top of the pole down to the ground a few feet away from the pole. You can just barely see it near the front right corner of the car, and also near the back bumper. My guess is that this car went up onto the curb for whatever reason, then "climbed" the wire. I could not find any videos, unfortunately, but if you search "car guy wire", you'll see lots of pictures just like this one. So, it's not totally unheard of.
You're right there. From the angles of the guy wire at back and front of the car, the front right wheel is hung on the wire.
I saw a sweet Chevelle SS that had split a fork in the road, ridden up a snowbank, and was giving a phone pole a big hug.
It was . . . adorable.
Jesus, Mary, St. Joseph and all the saints!
This is an 11.
Saw a driving school car run a red light this morning, that was a first.
Ouch! Right in the hypotenuse!!
is appropriate, at least.
