Forgot exactly where I saw this mentioned, but not something you see every day on Google Maps – Street View. Looks like there was an accident – car versus big tree – the later appears to have won – D'OH! ;-)

You probably saw it here: jalopnik.com/339821/google-str ... (it was on Digg)

I almost did that today, the road was a bit icy... lol :p

Yea, that was it – thanks. Had a buncha windows open and doing some other stuff ... and then Firefox crashed ... so lost track of the browser history.

There are a lot of (car) accident in Google Maps' street views. Really.
