Ancient Dacia Pickup Falls to Pieces

Whatever people are thinking, old and classic cars are more than adorable. The real problem is that, while some people choose to collect them as a hobby, others are trying to use them as their regular means of transportation. That, of course, could lead to terrible accidents that sometimes are as funny as they are tragic.

OK, we might push things a little bit too far, Dacia's old Pickup isn't quite a classic car but still, there are people who'd love to see one in their garage (we guess...). Well, here's what happened near Sibiu, Romania with one of those ancient cars that had trouble when trying to deal with the... wind.

While driving the Dacia Pickup on a national road, the driver was shocked to see that the car started falling into pieces. The first to leave the ship was the roof which, unfortunately, broke into pieces and hit a woman on the side of the road. Of course, the driver could not ignore what happened so he tried to push things further, so he lost control of the wheel and crashed into a Skoda Octavia. And that's not all.

Just to be sure the havoc is completed, the Pickup tried to hug a lorry but, refusing the contact, the driver roll over on the side of the road.

The results below are what you'd expect from such a wreckage. The lady who tried to catch the Dacia roof had only minor injuries, while the driver suffered several head injuries. The lorry driver escaped with a few broken ribs, while the Skoda driver was, surprisingly, untouched by the flying metal pieces.
