360 crash!
 
Alright the title isn't good but it made you look...check this out

Quote:

Ok, So monday I was involved in a Hit and run Car accident. My truck rolled 3 or 4 times. During the course of the rolling my xbox 360 Premium was thrown out of the vehicle. I didnt get knocked out and Im alive. When I got out of the vehicle I saw my beloved 360 and harddrive not to mention some of my games strewn along the road with other items of mine. I walked over and picked up the 360. Face plate not to be found. 360 had a tire mark on it. It had been ran over. Along with one of my wireless controllers and my remote and power brick. The power brick was ran over but shows no signs of damage. The games were ran over. Saints row and prey might be salvagable. The 360 Got ran over it was squished. one of the metal supports on the side was bent. And when I picked it up the case fell off. I straigtened the metal side and put the case back together and turned it on. It fired up and went to the dash I poped in a game and it read. Played for a little bit then watched a dvd. looks good to me.

This is really a testament to the 360. Granted it wont hold faceplates any more and its got a tire mark on it. It also has a chip missing from the chrome bezel. but it works...No I had the extended waranty from Microsoft but at this point in time I will probably buy an aftermarket case or an oem one if I can find it.

On a Side note I walked away with a bruised elbow.
Here are the pictures

You should look up and see if any celebrities got into an accident near you and sell it on Ebay saying they ran over it. :D

I am glad you are ok though.

That's pretty nuts. I'm glad it still works. I think I'd keep it as is as a testament to how well it stood up. :D
