Or if it were un my area it would have stopped at the bottom of the 50 foot bluff like our old chevy truck did.

If it was my back yard... we would need a crane to lift it out of the pond...

I live in the house that my uncle built and occupied for about 40 years. It is located accross the road from a trailer park.
My uncle was not fond of the trailer park folks, as one could imagine, and frequently feuded with them. One of his best volleys against them was done unintentionally, however.
About ten years ago, he left his M running in the driveway, a small pitch, while he went in for supper, presumably for the battery to charge. After supper, forgetting that the M was running, he lay down for a short nap. The little latch that holds the brake on as a parking brake vibrated free. The M slowly rolled down the driveway, accross the road, and crushed the trailer park's central electric meter stand, putting the park into blackout for about a week, until they sorted the mess out, and moved the meters (about 100 residences).
Whenever he told that story for the rest of his life, he got a big smile on his face. I know it cost him a pretty penny, as nothing in his homeowner's insurance would cover something as bizarre as that, but to him, I think it was worth every bit.
Everyone in the trailer park who was living there during the incident is convinced he did it intentionally, by the way.
