Famous ‘Earthquake Car’ Crushed By Collapsed Ceiling Was A Rental

NAPA (CBS SF) — It turns out the most famous car photographed following Sunday’s magnitude 6.0 earthquake in Napa was a rental, according to KPIX 5’s Joe Vazquez.

The Napa man, who asked to stay anonymous, says his car was in the shop for repairs after it was rear-ended earlier in the week.

He parked his rental car Saturday night after drinking, and took a taxi home. The next day following the earthquake, he found the car destroyed by a collapsed ceiling.

He told Vazquez he thought he was having a bad week, but considering the damage missed him, it seems as if luck was on his side.
