I have a funny story like that...

My brother and my sister live right next to each other. My brother had just gotten an old backhoe that wasn't in the greatest condition, but was huge. So, he was playing around with it in his yard, and the brakes weren't working right, and he drove it right into my sister's minivan. Luckily, it only broke the rear hatch, but he was able to replace it, and it was good to go.

So, about a week later, they had the minivan at a repair shop getting the brakes done, or something, and as it was sitting there overnight, a drunk driver plowed right into the side of it, totaling the van. Luckily for them, this was an unusually nice drunk driver, and they left a note on the windshield saying they were sorry, with their name and address and everything. I'm not sure how much they got out of it, but they ended up getting a new van anyway.

So, my brother kinda did them a favor by driving his backhoe into their van.
