I brought it up and noticed a deer in frame. This conversation ensued:
Me: that is pretty cool
Me: but also begs the question... is streetview really necessary there?
Him: did you keep driving?
Me: oh no
Him: oh yeah
Me: I think the next click is the sad one, it is right there along side, right before impact
Me: probably realizing... "uh oh"
Me: I thought the gvan went pretty slow..
Me: must have been moving pretty good
Update: It appears that this got Digg'd or something because it is no longer available due to high demand. I still had the start of the drive up on my screen so I snapped it. Once the demand dies down, it is worth a click (unless google removes it) I should also note that I think the van stopped.. because the street view ends 50 feet or so past the impact.
