This thank goodness is not my car. The passengers, firemen, police, and tow truck people were all standing around scratching their heads when I took this photo. Amazingly enough, no photo or story was in the newspaper. Still not sure how the driver and passenger got out of the car without disturbing the delicate balance.

    Oh my gosh! I so hope that was not you. I hesitate to give you props if it was... but then if you drove up it just to get this cool shot I might have to give you props. It would go something like this... "Now that is a committed artist there!".

    Somewhere, linemen are booing the fact that the pole didn't come down. It's an overtime thing.

    Either a masterful piece of driving or incredible luck. Half and inch on either side of the middle and the wire would not have caught between the 2 pipes leading to the back, the car would have flipped and who knows? Remarkable shot Cub Reporter!
