1989 TOYOTA CAMRY - rear brake failure
I was driving to a friend's house in the mid-afternoon (at about 40 km/h... too fast for conditions) when, as i crested a hill and began to brake for a stop sign, i hit a patch of black ice and began to slide. I was later informed that my rear drum brakes were completely useless as i slid helplessly towards a 'parked 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee... not only did if FEEL like forever, it WAS a long time... nothing to do but sit and watch in horror.
The steering system was torn apart as the wheel caught on the Jeep's bumper, and the drivers' side bodywork was ruined from the front bumper back to the end of the rear door. The Jeep's bumper literally exploded due to the cold, along with the grill and headlight, and the frame was bent.
While it wasn't a bad accident, it could have been... and it was completely preventable. The park brake had been broken since i bought the car, and it was the cause of the rear brake failure. Don't leave brake problems unattended to!!!
