 Yikes (Bridge Collapse)

Yep. Back when I was a teenager I was slowly driving my car on some icy side street one winter. Started sliding, there was a business parking lot on my left that I "steered" into. The lot sloped downward every so slightly and was empty save for ONE vehicle at the other end parked broadside, unoccupied. I could do nothing but slide as gravity and a lack of friction took over. It took about 10 seconds to cross the lot and harpoon that car dead center in the driver's door.

I can just imagine the crew up on the bridge and what they were thinking, and being basically helpless about what they knew was going to happen.
