If Aliens exist and they have technologies far in advance of our own why would they be able to travel millions of light years across the universe unharmed only to crash on Earth?

They'd forget the super-secure password that turned on the brakes.

maybe they ran out of gas or food... oh and if they did exist y the hell do they wana come to earth?

They wouldn't. Actually, unless they posessed a "sufficiently advanced technology"*, they wouldn't really be able to get here at all. *"A sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." Arthur C. Clarke

maybe they ran outta gas

Maybe they couldn't consider all the factors.

women driving

Maybe they weren't used to our gravity. Or maybe they did that on purpose to get inside our top secret facilities while they pretended to be dead, then they find out all our secrets!

OrganicAngel is right, it was a woman driver

Wait, wait!!!! I got it!!! They ran out of transmission fluid, the transmission locked up, and they crashed. That or they forgot to get their timing belt changed every 50,000 light years!

It was probably some luckless alien teenager's road test.

How do you know they've crashed only on Earth?

Maybe they just thought this was a cool place to stop. Lord knows why they'd think that.

Correct jst. Abnormal weather patters or unpredictable electrical storms could disrupt navigational systems or throw them into general disarray. Contrary to common misconception, technology would make them far from invincible.

They wouldn't.

Protection against our weather systems (on earth and the solar system) would not be so hard to design. Interstellar travellers would encounter far harsher conditions.

This is just another fairly obvious reason to show that we have not been visited by 'little green men'.
