The story of cursed car of Archduke Francis Ferdinand.
On June 28, 1914, Archduke Francis
Ferdinand and his wife Archduchess, Sophie were gunned down by an assassin. The
car they were in was a red, six seat, and open touring car. This was the event
that started World War I.
General Portiorek was the next to possess this
cursed car. After a huge military defeat and a trip to Vienna for more disgrace,
he began having mental problems and died in an insane asylum.
The name of the next person that owned this car is
not known. All that is known is that he was an army captain. He was driving the
car and two peasants walked onto the road in front of him. He tried to miss them
by swerving the car, but they were hit and the car veered off the road and hit a
tree. All three were killed at the accident.
The car made its way to the governor of Yugoslavia.
During the time he had this car, he was in four separate accidents one in which
he lost his arm. He concluded the car was bad luck and his friend, Dr. Srikis
bought it. He did not believe a car could be cursed. Within six months, he was
dead when the car overturned killing him.
Next it is believed to be owned by a doctor that
lost all of his patients or by a diamond dealer that committed suicide.
Next, was a Swiss racecar driver. He died when he
crashed the car into a wall even though he was thrown from the wreck.
A farmer bought the car, but had trouble getting the ignition to work, decided
to tow the car with his wagon. He hitched it and was ready to pull it along when
it fell on him and he died instantly.
Tiber Hirshfield was the very last person to own
this terrifying car. He was on his way to a wedding with five close friends. He
tried to pass a long row of cars when the car mysteriously spun out of control
and crashed. Everyone was killed except for one person whose name is withheld.
To see this cursed car you can view it at
