I'm beginning to think this place is an accident hotspot. This week's event involved one of those large tractor forklift things dropping a massive trailer generator off the lifts upside down onto the middle of the road. He hastily rammed it to the side of the road and flipped it back up before (perhaps optimistically) checking to see if it was okay. As is becoming par for the course with these things, he missed a car by about six inches.

Those machines are called "tele-porters" which is quite a clever name...but could be a little misleading if you were a visitor from another planet.

Or the driver, who evidently thought it was called the "Droppy-Smashy".
