I spend a great deal of my weekend either searching old newspapers (1890-1920) or older films (particularly the odd ones) for interesting automotive facts and stories.

Today I present to you a scene from Stephen King's Maximum Overdrive (1986). The movie, which stars a young Emelio Esteves, involves various machines coming to life and killing people.

In the opening scene this evil spirit takes control of a drawbridge and creates what I'm now calling the worst movie accident scene in history of movies.

I've pulled that scene out and posted it to YouTube for your viewing pleasure.

If you have worse examples of movie accidents - please, share them.
