I may have been involved in a record for shortest distance before wrecking a new car. In 1955 I was a parts chaser for a Lincoln-Mercury dealer. My vehicle was a WW2 war surplus Jeep. A man picked up his brand new Chevy V-8 at the dealer's on 19th St, drove one block west and turned north in one block. At 14th St me and my Jeep were in the center lane, ready to turn left. New Chevy owner, impressed with the power of his new car, decided to jump the light buy taking the Southbound lane just as I was turning. Didn't hurt the Jeep much, but really screwed up his brand new car, totally caved in the front and punctured the radiator, steam all over the place. Needless to say, he was beyond irate. Told me he was was good friends with the owner of my company and he would have me fired. When I got back to the shop and told what had happened, the BIG BOSS said "Don't worry, If he was really a friend, he wouldn't have bought a Chevy!"

I was working an accident once where a car carrier was hit and jack knifed. This was on an overpass and two of the cars on the top deck snapped their hold downs and went off the side. Flattened the roofs on both of them. Window stickers and all.

While we were waiting to open the road back up, one older rescue worker remembered when he was a kid and the Plymouth plant in Evansville would ship new cars out by barge. A run away tow hit one once and sank with the cars aboard. People think that since it's just a river, it can't be that deep. The Ohio is not something to take lightly and it took them quite a while to find the barge and cars.
