When Buildings Attack – Car Crushed by Crumbling Building in France

Audi crushed by fallen overhang in Avignon, France

While exploring Avignon on our France vacation, we saw the remains of an Audi station wagon that had been crushed by a fallen building overhang. The police were still standing outside the building with the area barricaded off as we came upon the scene. It wasn’t more than a couple of days earlier that I asked Donna what she thought about the structural integrity of Europe’s old buildings and wondered how frequently they are inspected.

    Oh my! Truly a shame! (Sorry for not commenting earlier, Lee. For some reason, Blogger isn’t updating the blog roll on my blog with the latest posts until two days later!)

  2. Lol. This is another reason to stay away from old buildings. Poor Audi. Hope it was insured. 😉
