• Unsuspecting Toyota Yaris gets flattened by giant boulder

Before you get all freaked out about the thought of a person sitting inside this Toyota Yaris when a huge boulder fell on it, we’ll spare you from that God-awful news. Thankfully, nobody was inside the car when this happened. If there was someone there, there’s a remote chance that that person would have made it out alive.

The accident occurred in the Derbyshire Peak District in the UK when a truck carrying those mammoth boulders accidentally dropped one straight into a poor Yaris that was clearly at the wrong place, at the wrong time.

The car’s owner, a lovely young female, parked the car and ran a seemingly innocuous errand only to return to her car to see what’s pretty much left of it. There’s no word yet on what the proceedings will be as a result of this accident although the truck company responsible for this boulder-sized error should do the right thing and open up their wallets to buy the young lady a new car.

We’re still perishing with the thought of a person inside that car when this happened. We’re thankful that nobody was there, but if there was someone inside, that would’ve been a really sucky way to lose a life.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

I’m very hopeful that everything in Toyota would be fine. I understand their situation right now. But hoping that there will be thorough investigation on their upcoming projects.
