I hope he bought a lottery ticket . . .
Two readers in Europe sent me a link to this series of photographs of a traffic accident. I've cropped some of them to display here - full-size images are at the link.
That's the remains of a Volkswagen Golf compact car. According to the German text beneath the picture, the owner was driving home after visiting his girlfriend when he lost control and hit a tree - clearly at very high speed.
The amazing thing is, he got out and walked away with only minor injuries! He was able to walk over half-a-mile to a nearby village to seek help. I have no idea how he got away with that . . . apart from Divine intervention, of course.
Looking at that heap of scrap metal, I hope he bought a lottery ticket. With survivor's luck like that, he can't lose!
