Talking Runaway wrecking ball causes chaos - July 10, 2007, 02:00 PM


MEADVILLE, Pennsylvania (AP) --
A 1,500-pound wrecking ball broke loose from a crane cable and raced downhill, smashing into several cars and injuring three people before coming to rest in the trunk of a car at an intersection Monday.
The wrecking ball, about 3 feet across, was being used to demolish part of a library at Allegheny College when the cable snapped, police said. The crane operator tried to stop it, but it rolled nearly three-quarters of a mile downhill, damaging more than a dozen vehicles as it bounced from curb to curb, police said.

Most of the damaged vehicles were parked, but the ball slammed into the rear of Alex Habay's car stopped at an intersection, causing a chain-reaction accident with two other cars at the traffic light, police said.
"All of a sudden, the back windshield exploded and I hit the car in front of me," said Habay, 20, a junior at Allegheny College.
The ball lodged in the trunk of a car, pushing the vehicle about 20 feet.

Bet that didnt feel to good!

That's a lot of effort just to test your trunk space.
