The battle of the bigs, the Big Apple versus California, in car accidents.
In New York, a BMW ran into a house. Literally:
Three people had to be rescued from the second floor of their Long Island home after a speeding car crashed into it early Thursday morning.
Around 6 a.m., the driver of a BMW sport utility vehicle somehow lost control and drove onto the sidewalk along busy Ocean Avenue in Malverne and crashed into the first floor of a two-story home.
The residents inside the house were asleep upstairs at the time of the crash.
“It feels like an earthquake, that’s all I can tell you,” homeowner Javiera Ortega told CBS 2′s Jessica Schneider.
“They obviously heard the crash, but luckily no one was injured inside the home,” Malverne Fire Chief Scott Edwards told WCBS 880′s Mike Xirinachs.
What could top that? Try California. And tacos:
Police officials north of Sacramento are blaming eating while driving for a multiple car crash Thursday morning.
The accident occurred in the town of Antelope. About 3:30 a.m., a man was driving down a neighborhood street when he crashed into two parked cars. The impact caused the man’s car to flip over onto its roof, authorities said.
Witnesses told Fox 40 news the man was eating a taco while he was driving. Officers say he was looking down brushing some crumbs off his lap when he crashed into the cars.
Go easy on the tacos when driving. Enchiladas, I can understand. On the subject of tacos, the town of Bethel, Alaska is not getting a Taco Bell:
In what has been described as an evil hoax, the town of Bethel, Alaska, has learned it is not getting a Taco Bell. Not now. Not ever.
How do they make a Run for the Border in Alaska without a Taco Bell? Or, as we used to fondly call it, Taco Hell. . .
