Car filmed stuck in bizarre upright position


Posted on Saturday, 5 August, 2017 | Comment icon 28 comments
A couple driving home in Connecticut recently were shocked to come across this highly unusual spectacle.
Filmed in West Suffield on Wednesday during a heavy rainstorm, the above footage shows a car that had somehow ended up suspended almost in mid air with only the rear bumper touching the ground.

"So we are in a storm right now and... I literally don't know what, I think the wind took it," a woman can be heard saying. "This is what's happening right now in Suffield on a mountain road."

Photographs posted on to Facebook by the Suffield Fire Department however later revealed exactly what had happened - the car had become tangled up in the wires of a fallen telephone pole.

"We could see the telephone pole break and fall in front of us," said Lisa Beaulieu, who had been driving the stricken vehicle. "And I couldn't stop and we ended up getting tangled up in the wires."

"We were really scared. I was worried we were going to fall."

Luckily however, both Lisa and her two children made it to safety without injury.

absolutely ridiculous. Have you seen the video? that is not fake. The car is not standing up by its self, it is caught up in the cables. And it is not "real just because other people say it is.", it is real because it was recorded, the fire service is there, are they pasted in as well? . I can not believe you are even questioning this video. How can you not see the reflections on the bonnet, windows and roof as being real? how can you not even see the car caught up in the cables?

Its real because its real. None of the major news networks that run the story have cried fake, we even have the call to the emergency services

You could have just visited the fire services page or the cops page at Facebook.... or their own websites if they have them Instead of wasting time on imaging programs

I think you missed the intended sarcasm. Its 100% fake and obvious too.

why bother putting it in MS Paint then and drawing black circles where it was allegedly image blurred?

You just keep digging that hole.

Nah, it's real. Those are jpeg artefacts, I reckon.

well will you now return and admit its 100% real?

Thank you for buffing up my already mighty and impressive ego. The fact you cannot move on without requiring my endorsement confirms my God complex to me. Award yourself a cookie.
