I was leaving work and came upon this accident on my way home. The police directed us around the scene and I held my Canon 880 up and got this out my rear window.

That's quite a fender bender.

Nice documentary shooting.

Thank you! I might add that no one was injured seriously.

Good reason to keep a p&s in the car. Nicely done.

Looks like a Dodge Magnum got crunched. Nice over the shoulder shooting. Did you use your rear view mirror to help frame the shot on the LCD?

The one time I didn't have my camera with me, my car got rear-ended. I could have really used the camera to document the collision for insurance. Now I always drive with a camera.

I tried driving with a camera once, but I found it better to use a steering wheel.

Thanks for the comments everyone! Doc, I just held the camera up and shot, it has a pretty wide lens so I figured I'd get most everything out the back window.
