Watch A Suspected Drunk Driver Launch Her Car Over A Roundabout And Into The Air

Some serious amateur Dukes of Hazzard shit was going down in Long Beach yesterday, with the skill and planning normally associated with stunt driving replaced with speed, inattention, and a 300 pound boulder to get effectively the same result: a car flying through the air. Incredibly, nobody was hurt in the wreck.

Car Chase Ends With Jaguar Ejecting Its Engine Right Into Someone’s Living Room

A police chase in Baton Rouge, Louisiana ended with the fleeing driver crashing his (I think) Jaguar XE into some trees, which caused not only the driver to be ejected from the car, but the 2.0-liter inline-four turbo engine as well, which flew from the car, through an apartment door, and landed in the living room of…

Driver Attempts Real-World Spy Hunter/Italian Job Move And It Doesn’t Go So Hot

Remember the old video game Spy Hunter? Or the old movie The Italian Job? Sure you do. You may recall that one of the most notable events in both game and movie involved driving a car up a ramp, and into the back of a truck, often while in motion. A Subaru Forrester driver in Northampton, Massachusetts appeared to…

Watch A Cop Drag A Guy Out Of A Car Right Freaking Before It Gets Hit By A Train

Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Rubern Correa is a hero, but I would not want to be his underpants. Early this morning Trooper Correa came upon a car stuck on the railroad tracks, with an unconscious driver inside. With only seconds to spare, Trooper Correa dragged the person out of the car (it looks like a Honda CR-V),…

Somebody Drives A Mercedes AMG GT Into A Hydrant And It’s A Spectacular Mess

I suppose sometimes the entire purpose of a post is just visually exciting schadenfreude, and I’m guessing this is one of those times. This is just a dumb wreck, allegedly caused by the young owner of the Mercedes AMG GT tearing ass around Koreatown, blowing through a stoplight, and hitting a Range Rover, then a…

Big Rig Full Of Flour Tips And Pancakes Car On National Pancake Day

I’m not sure if you have any plans for today, National Pancake Day, like maybe taking a special someone to a couples’ pancake spa or anything like that, but even if you do, I don’t think it can top what this Nissan Z driver did in Watervliet, New York. This guy celebrated the Day of Pancakes by having his own car

This Is What Happens When a Drag Racer’s Parachutes Fail

Just in case you’re skeptical about just how much work a drag racer’s parachutes do to slow down a speeding car, here’s an excellent demonstration. Even though they’re not making that hot caliper-on-rotor contact of the brakes, a car’s drag chutes are incredibly important, as you can see right here on Pro Mod racer…

Florida Driver’s Windshield Sliced By Flying Plywood

Just in case you thought that none of the cool kids ever do anything as lame as really making sure their loads in pickup truck beds are completely secure, let me scare you straight, you little punk: look what happens when you don’t properly secure your loads. You can cause situations like this, where a sheet of…

Holy Crap This Is A Bonkers Wreck

I’ll start off by saying that nobody was seriously hurt in this wreck in Atlanta, so feel free to really revel in the remarkable batshittery of it all. I mean, that Mazda 2 tumbles off the roof of that building like a colossal cat just batted it off.

Our Old Pal the Low-Ass 11-Foot-8 Bridge Dishes Out Hard Street Justice to a Red Light Runner

It’s been a while since we’ve checked in with my favorite local celebrity, the ornery-but-fair Durham, NC bridge we all lovingly call the 11foot8 bridge. Unlike what most people think, the name does not come from the Civil War Union General Elevah Fough-Tate, but rather from the bridge’s clearance height, which is a…
