Google Street View Car Commits Suicide By Bridge

Capping an unseasonably goofy week for Street View, one of their drivers managed to clothesline his car's protruding pole camera with a low bridge outside of Pittsburgh. He submitted the photos to his boss anyway.

You can relive the moment in Street View or via Valleywag's video, embedded here, but you'll have to furnish your own sound effects. I'd like to suggest an Urkelian "Did I do thaaaaat?", if I may. [Reddit via Valleywag]

UPDATE: Some commenters have plausibly suggested that the camera could have just been deliberately lowered and accidentally left on, creating this mind-melting set of image data. This explanation is reasonable, but more to the point it's much less fun.
