Yep. That’s a dumpster on top of a BMW. St. Louis Police arrived on the scene at 1:21 Friday afternoon and found the overturned sedan with a full-size, industrial dumpster on top of it. Apparently, a rogue forklift hit the Beamer and flipped it, then crushing its undercarriage with the dumpster after dropping it for whatever reason. The driver of the forklift was only charged with failing to yield at a left turn. The driver is okay.

Here’s the full size image.

That’s no fun. Here’s the full report:

Officers responded to a call for an accident at Convention & N. Broadway at 1:21p.m. this afternoon. An industrial-sized forklift carrying a dumpster filled with scraps of metal was traveling westbound on Convention, making a left turn onto Broadway when it struck a vehicle, causing the vehicle to overturn. The dumpster the forklift was carrying was projected onto the overturned vehicle, and the driver of the forklift released the dumpster and backed the forklift away to avoid further potential damage to the vehicle. The driver of the forklift was cited for “Failure to Yield While Making a Left Turn”. The driver of the overturned vehicle was conscious and breathing and conveyed to a hospital to be treated. The investigation is ongoing.

What do I love? I love happy hour, a good golf tan, and getting moderately drunk during dinner.
