You know you're having a bad day when something like this happens.

According to Nandu.com (via Shanghaiist) both passengers in this Audi S5 escaped with non-life-threatening injuries after a shipping container fell on it, crushing the car like the proverbial pancake near Quanzhou, China.

The container fell across the entire passenger compartment, literally flattening the roof to the point where it's hard to tell that the car ever had one.

The roof appears to have taken the brunt of the damage. The front end looks remarkably intact considering the circumstances, and the doors were able to open after the container was removed.

Now bowing upward like a Lamborghini's, the doors created just enough of an opening for a person to be extricated, but with the windshield now touching the headrests, it's amazing the passengers were able to make it out at all.

No word on exactly how the shipping container ended up on top of the Audi.
