    Nobody was seriously hurt but Superman was on hand just-in-case.

    :D

    (But seriously, after watching the video the fact no-one was hurt is incredible.)

    Why is the video running at such high speed? It's hard to tell how fast the car was actually moving.

    Maybe there was kryptonite( spelling?) in the womans car hindering Superman from rescuring her. :p

    Generally speaking, generic survellence cameras pick up a frame every so seconds... Then probably whoever compiled the video set it at a normal fps of like 24~30 and it speed everything up... Thats my guess... heh

    Lol superman.

    I highly doubt that. Kryptonite is pretty hard to get.

    I was just going to comment on that - the story doesn't say how she did on the test! I hope she didn't pass if she's having trouble judging how hard to accelerate.

    With everything sped up that crash looks rough. Sucks to be her right now, but at least she didn't kill anyone, i think we'd see a lot of news about mandatory retesting... :eek:

    Then maybe he was wearing red kryptonite and was the one who threw the car into the building???? :p I mean he probably destroyed the gas pedal when he went to accelerate and they failed him so he was pissed. So he threw an innocent old lady into the test center?

    I've always been for mandatory retesting of old people, but before they do that, they may wish to surround test centers with 3 foot thick concrete.

    Not really. It's available from any bike store. Costs a bit more than other locks but it can be worth it for deterring super-burglars.

    Seems to have backfired tho as in this case it kept Superman away.
