...my husband's wagon fell off the road. His station wagon!
They had just finished up their trek experience (Which went great, by the way.) and had swung through McDonald's to get dinner. My husband's inspection sticker had expired and a cop pulled him over. As he pulled off the road, there wasn't much shoulder, so he pulled partially into the grass and weeds along the side of the road. Only, the grass and weeds were concealing a ditch. His left wheels slid off and the rest of the car followed.
In the car with him were 4 of the youth from the trip, including our son Marvin. Miraculously, no one was hurt, not even the car. A tow truck pulled it out and except for a scratch on the forward door and some mud, there was no evidence it had just been in a ditch on its side. Even the sideways super size sodas in the center console managed not to leak!
The kids thought it was great. They were hanging in their seatbelts sideways, laughing and taking pictures of themselves. A lot of the people from the trek stopped to offer assistance and take pictures. It looked like an Amish convention on the side of the road.
P.S. The cop felt sorry for him and didn't give him a ticket. The tow truck cost a lot less than the ticket would have. But, we still think it is an extreme technique for getting out of a ticket and don't recommend it!
