If you’re seeing a picture of a car accident in Google Image Search, it’s not just you



After cruising through Google Image Search looking for usual assortment of pies (the apple kind) and unicorn art, Reddit users began noticing a reoccurring image of a car accident appearing in their search results (also, the occasional appearance of Kevin Durant). Reports ranged everywhere from Canada to the US, so it didn’t seem like it was an isolated incident.

Sure enough, Google responded saying it was, in fact, a problem on their end and that they’re hard at work on getting your usual Google Image Search results — no matter how dirty — up and running again. Just wanted to let you guys know in case you noticed something similar and started wiping your phones or flashing new ROMs. Ha.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Too late flashed a rom

    1. Stuck in a boot loop now huh?

      1. Only if you have absolutely no clue how to flash a rom… (quick hint, wipe stuff)

        1. Or if the ROM was a bad download and you didn’t take the time to verify the MD5sum.

  2. That’s kind of creepy.

  3. Who cares…so much pie nom nom nom

  4. I use bing.

    (too bad disqus hid down votes… This comment could set a record)

    1. I heard Bing was good in it’s own way…

    2. You and a few hundred thousand other people… maybe.

  5. Seems as if google is completely down, I can’t access anything google related at all. On 4g or my wifi. PC or on my G3.

    Seems like it’s some network issues going on, a bunch of sites are down for me, and others as well. My g3 was finally able to connect with cell data after I toggled airplane mode.

    EDIT: Managed to find out it’s a nationwide outage right now with TWC/BHN isp’s.
