Google's Street View has certainly caused a lot of controversy since its launch in 2007, in particular when it comes to privacy. It's not only web users' houses that can be seen on the Google Maps add-on. A number of disastrous real-life moments have also been captured on camera, and subsequently posted on the web for everyone to see.

We found 16 recent events that surely someone (or something) wishes had an undo button. Click the link to Google Maps to pan around the live images - unless Google has beaten you to it and has revised history with a clean version of the picture.

Charming ranch with a view?

A lot of homebuyers use Google Street View to scope out neighbourhoods where they might want to settle down. This dilapidated house located in the Turtle Mountain region of Manitoba, Canada flies straight past fixer-upper status and right into disaster territory.

Hate it when this happens

We've all suffered accidental spills from a water bottle, just as this walker in Rotterdam, Netherlands, did. But we haven't all had our accident chronicled by Google Street View. (Or if you have, you're hoping we don't find it.)

Zut Alors! (Translation: Gosh Darn It!)

According to the '10 Most Confusing Accidents' on car enthusiast site Jalopnik, a smashed-up car brings out nine cops in Roncq, Nord, France. When you look at the crash site live on Boulevard d'Halluin in Google Maps, however, the authorities have since disappeared (click the right directional arrow three times to see the unlucky car).

Mexico breaks up or the police officer gets called away on duty.

The landscape in Central Shasta, California, where this shot was taken looks peaceful enough, but you still wouldn't want to leave your SUV parked sideways on it. One thing is for sure: the driver isn't going to go far on that front left tire.

Emergency in New Jersey
