A Maserati was written off when it was covered in white paint after the driver swerved to avoid hitting a dog in the road in South Australia.
RAA Insurance says the motorist was driving with a tin of white paint on the back seat and when they swerved to miss the dog the lid dislodged from the tin and the paint flew through the air.
The insurance company posted the photo on Facebook and wrote: "What a disaster! If you get a new paint job for your Maserati, make sure it's on the outside (lucky he was insured....)"
Claims manager Hayley Cain told ABC: "The driver swerved to avoid a dog and the tin of paint he'd set on the back seat flew through the air dislodging the lid," she said.
"As the tin flew around the car like a mini tornado, the leather interior and windscreen were liberally splashed with a thick coat of white paint."
According to The Australian, Ms Cain said the driver was fine but "given the extent of damage to the interior, our insurance assessors declared it a write-off and we settled the claim for over $90,000 (£43,750)".
