Car Crash
Of course it was a car crash, it just wasn't mine. When I was about 15 and riding home from school, I stopped on the edge of a T junction waiting to cross (4pm was a horrible time because there were cars everywhere). After waiting for 3 minutes patiently I pondered whether to move down road a bit to try again later.

I had moved my bike backwards about 15cm when the car waiting to turn onto the main road went a bit early and was taken out by the oncoming truck. Said truck proceeded to pull the small Mitsubishi straight through the part of air my bicycle had been occupying merely seconds before.

I did NOT hang around long enough to be a witness for anyones police report...
