OnStar, How May I Help You?

“This is OnStar Emergency, have you just been in an accident?”
“Yes, I am a vehicle porter for a GM plant and I just crashed this minty-fresh Malibu. I was loading it onto a freight train and I decided to ram the train going 35 mph… what should I do?”
“Blame it on Toyota?”

I was just emailed some carnage-laden photos of a fresh-off-the-line Chevrolet Malibu. It seems an overzealous lot porter experienced some inexperienced acceleration straight into a freight train.
Let the caption action begin!
Update from the source’s source: (this is still a rumor at this point)
Official story is that it was being delivered to the train and the employee dropped the manifest in the floor and was picking it up, then hit the train in an unlit area.

Truth is that the employee was actually taking it to the QwikTrip and was texting, got to an unlit crossing but red lights were flashing and hit a flat bed train car that was stopped. The train started backing up and spun him out from underneath

    The first step should be to recall all Malibu's, then insted of fixing the problem they should just send them all to the crusher and refund all the owners.
    Mabee we will start hearing of unintended acceleration problems with the malibu now.

    This car obviously ran into Chuck Norris in a crosswalk.

    This Malibu was born a Malibu with the heart of a Corvette. Sadly, things didn't work out so well.

      The Malibu-V, now THAT would be a sneaky engine swap though you might want to swap the go-wheels to the back or you would torque steer your arms into mush

        They already sell a 5.3L powered Impala, meaning you could probably cram that FWD powertrain into the Malibu.
        No reason you couldn't put a 6.2L or 7.0L in place of that 5.3.
        No reason aside from that fact that you'd liquefy the tranny the second you hit the gas.

          Liquefied Tranny! That's something you don't hear every day.

      My first thoughts. The front looks very Corvette-ish smashed up. Especially around that broken headlight area.

    This Malibu will be up for auction alongside Tiger's smashed up Escalade.

    The UAW still has a way to go to improving work conditions at this plant.

    Who says the Malibu isn't a viable competitor to the Camry?

    You will never find a car as new as this one! Low miles, never driven from the dealership!
    Slight front-end damage, maybe just a new hood and bumper. We might have one around back.

    Fortinet does not block Hooniverse at work anymore! Hooray!
    So… Brand new Malibu eh? Judging by the rust on the brakes already, I’d say its about 2 hours old.

    When an object is in motion, it will stay in motion until it runs into a freight train. . .or something

    Humph. Tweaks the emotions about as much as seeing a dryer that got pushed off the loading dock then backed into by a forklift.
