Default What the hell...How did this happen?

Went to go get some gas today and this is what happened across the street.
Anyone want to take a stab on how this happened ?

Yeah, rear ended. The car in the front must have slammed on the brakes, causing the front to dip down and the rear to raise up, the car behind it also locked up the brakes but was going to fast, the dipping action of the rear car and the raising action of the front car combined with the speed of the rear car was enough to propel the rear car under the front car.

Im guessing the first car pulled up over the line too far and put it in reverse to back up but never put it back in drive so when the light turned green that person stomped it and it is obviously a front wheel drive car so it just drove up on the hood of the other one, i wish i could have seen that!

I did not witness this stupid stuntbut heard the comotion across the street shortly there after it happened.
I believe DangerRanger2000 has it right.
Otherwise if the front vehicle was rearend by the rear one then the mini van would have been propelled into the intersection. Then again the front car driver could have been mashing the brakes real hard anticipating the impact as he/she viewed the horror in the rearview. Those are some good brakes.

How much do you want to bet that the neon driver was texting or talking on the cell phone, when this went down? That is what I call a driver not paying attention to what he or she was doing, and caused this mess.
