It is not always easy to hit the brakes and take evasive action when driving around with a can of paint in the back seat!
Something an unfortunate car owner in Australia experienced. A dog ran across the road in front of the vehicle. And the result of evasive maneuver was one of the most special insurance cases in Australia ever.
The can opened, was thrown forward and around inside the car.
- The can flew around inside the car like a mini-tornado. Leather seats, interior and and windshield was covered by a thick layer of paint, says Hayley Cain in the insurance company RAA.
Thankfully everything is fine with the driver. But because of the mess inside the car, we decided that car had to be condemned, adds Cain.
This was not just any car. No, the newly painted interior belongs to a Maserati Quattroporte. That means exclusive materials and prices of spare parts well above average.
Now you might think that the insurance company would be reluctant to replace an injury like this, and believe that to drive around with a can of paint in the car is quite negligently.
But no, RAA pays $90,000 to the Maserati owner. Just guessing that next time he will put the cans the trunk.
