Finally, Google goes and does something worth our while. In what seems to be a completely inexplicable car accident, a Minneapolis woman decided to drive her Mercedes Benz E-Class into a tree - and the Google Street View camera car was there to immortalize it. Unfortunately the moment of impact wasn't captured by the pseudo-surveillance set-up so we're left with a head scratcher. It appears to be a one car accident, on a lightly congested street, in broad daylight - with a big tree. We'll refrain from the easy lady driver jokes, but still, how the heck did that happen?[Google.com]

The size of the houses in the neighborhood make it seem unlikely that the Benz is ordinary here. The fact that there is what appears to be a cop car in the background, and the fact that this car has it's trunk open, make me suspect a police chase, ending in a minor collision, with the narcotics discovered in back. The color of the Benz being white, I am going to assume this is a 'hood coke-mobile. Until proven otherwise.
