freebie and the bean bedroom scene.

A few days ago, I was driving North on US Route 1 with a friend, and I noticed flashing lights ahead, on the southbound side of the highway. When we got abreast of the accident scene, my friend and simultaneously said, “How the hell did that happen?”.

One vehicle was a pickup truck–which was facing the wrong way on the side of the road-- and the other vehicle–a sedan of some sort–was in a different, yet equally weird, position.
Reconstructing that accident is going to take a lot of guesswork on the part of the cops, I think.

Me too, how did they do that?

I live near the ocean in Florida. We see a lot of 20 foot plus center console boats being trailered. Driving to Orlando saw a pickup in the woods, his boat flew off the trailer during the crash and was perched on the roof of the truck.
