Car traps official when computer fails

I guess it was only a matter of time… though I think many people would have expected this from a Windows powered car first…

Security guards smashed their way into an official limousine with sledgehammers on Monday to rescue Thailand’s finance minister after the car’s computer failed. Suchart Jaovisidha and his driver were trapped inside the BMW limo for more than 10 minutes before guards broke a window. All doors and windows locked automatically when the computer crashed, and the air conditioning stopped, officials said.

“We could hardly breathe for over 10 minutes,” Suchart told reporters. “It took my guard a long time to realize that we really wanted the window smashed so that we could crawl out. It was a harrowing experience.”
