In the last few days there have been a couple freak car accidents in which body parts have been rolled over by the heavy vehicles yet the victims survive! In California a man ran over his own head and in Florida Oprah jumps into action after her driver crushed a woman's toe.

A man in Aurora, California, had just climbed into his van and lit up his morning smoke when he accidentally dropped the cigarette down the front of his jacket. He jumped out to avoid being burned, and that's when the freak accident happened.

Unfortunately, his car was still on and in reverse! When he jumped, the van door knocked him down as it began to roll backwards. The driver's side tire rolled over the man's head, and he sustained life-threatening injuries. He's currently in critical condition but expected to survive.

Yeah that’s a freaky situation, but it didn’t even have to happen! There was a passenger in the van who should have put the van in park the moment his friend opened the door!! How are you gonna just let your boy be burnt, knocked down and rolled over while you just sit there??!!

And in Oprah news ...... The Media Mogul and her bestie Gayle were leaving dinner in Miami as a crowd gathered around her SUV. One of Oprah's fans Lori Bender was standing near the curb as the driver turned the wheel and began to pull forward. That's when you heard Lori scream as her big toe was being crushed under the wheel. Her husband started banging on the window and pleading for the driver to back up and off his wife's toe. He did and Oprah quickly got out of the SUV and rushed to check on Lori's foot.

Although Lori always dreamed of meeting Oprah Winfrey, she never imagined it would be under these circumstances!

"Oprah gets out of car, walks around, puts her arm around me, she said 'My driver ran over your toe?' I said yes! And she said 'You're standing here?' And I said yes! My husband said 'This isn't something that happens every day' and she said no, it's not. I had the biggest smile on my face."

Oprah was horrified about the incident and offered to take a few selfies with Lori before the Benders went inside the Prime 112 restaurant for a New York strip.
