Following that same logic, all our ancestors were evil, because knapping flint knives was pure evil, right there - since they undoubtedly allowed countless other cavemen to be killed. Nevermind all that other good stuff toolmaking was used for and resulted in.

It didn't just run over something. It ran over something with just the right angle, allowing it to punch a 2" hole in a 1/4" steel plate. That's not a fucking pothole, and it would have mangled any other car just as badly. The other one involved driving through a concrete barricade. Enough said about that one.

Stop trying to downplay these accidents, because they were not minor.

We have three fires. I know one was the result of running over steel debris at highway speed as it fell off a truck in front of the car. I also know the one in Mexico involved driving through a concrete barricade and landing amidst some trees.

It's not like these things are just... catching fire for no reason or because of a rough bump in a parking lot.
