Toronto, Ontario -- March 7, 2019 -- From a major drug-bust to a terrifying avalanche pouring over a series of vehicles, Collision Repair has prepared the top three unbelievable stories of the week!
1. Suspicious Tires
A number of Canadian Ford dealerships made an unexpected discovery. Dealerships in Ontario, New Brunswick, and Quebec found large packets of methamphetamine hidden in the spare tires of Ford Fusions that didn’t actually match the make or model of the vehicle. The vehicles were shipped over from a Mexico car factory. Police said they believe the shipment of illegal drugs was part of an operation run by the Sinaloa Drug Cartel, which is the group that controls the area around the Ford factory plant in Hermosillo, Mexico. In total, they found 180 kilograms of meth which is an estimated street value of $4.5 million.
2. Total Whiteout
The most expensive new car has been sold for 16.7 million euros which is about US$18.9 million. The one-off Bugatti luxury sports car which is also referred to as “La Voiture Noire” meaning “The Black Car” is a low-slung sports car with a huge 16-cylinder engine and of course a Bugatti trademark on the front grille. The vehicle made its debut at the Geneva auto show and announced it had already been sold.
3. La Voiture Noir
Terrifying Dash cam footage shows a blanket of snow coming down on a series of vehicles traveling on Colorado’s Ten Mile Canyon region. Shaune Golemon was driving on 1-70 when his daughter took notice of the wall of snow that was coming down from the mountain that surrounded them-- it was indeed an avalanche. The avalanche came down and completely covered the vehicle making it impossible to move or see. There were no reports of injuries and they were able to safely get out of the vehicle after the snow was finished coming down. Local media confirms the avalanche was not a controlled slide. Warnings were in place at the time of the incident.
