Here’s the story: So these two guys are towing an old, broken bus down from the Delheim estate. It’s downhill, and the tow bar breaks. The bus in front pulls off the road, leaving the broken bus (with no power steering, no brakes, nothing) to careen down the hill, towards a T-Junction. Behind the wheel are two young guys, both with no drivers licenses. They practically ramp over the T-Junction skid sideways up a small hill, then manage to turn right back onto the road, where, facing oncoming traffic, they pull right, through a barbed wire fence which rips off some side skirting and crumples the front, down an embankment and into some vines, trailing the fence behind it. All moments before we arrive. Luckily nobody was seriously injured, but the "driver" (make that RIDER) got an earful of glass as the windshield popped out and into the cab.
