This past Friday, Jayson W (he requested his last name be removed) and his wife were heading to Chicago’s Spring Awakening Music Festival in an Uber when their driver began to convulse.

What you see above is a BMW 1 Series coupe neatly implanted into the side of a factory in Banbury, England—and, no, this wasn’t captured during the filming of a movie stunt or something. I’m trying to decide if it was a crash or some kind of teleporter mishap.
A Minnesota man survived an insane crash that reportedly involved his car driving off an embankment, flying over 210 feet of open water, coming to a stop on ice, and making it to a nearby home around 3:30 a.m. The local police chief politely called this a “miracle.”
We talked plenty about the new Volvo XC60 yesterday—it’s loaded with new driver-assist tech, there’s a number of powertrains, including a T8 hybrid with 407 horsepower. Fine car. Well, Volvo also wanted to show off how this thing performs if it winds up in a crash. Check it.
A 24 year-old allegedly lost control of his speeding Porsche on a motorway in Greece yesterday and crashed into a mother and her 3 year-old daughter sitting in a parked car. Four people, including two in the Porsche, were killed in the crash and subsequent explosion.
Welcome back to Giz Asks, a series where we ask experts hard questions about science, technology, and humanity’s future. Today, we’re trying to find the latest consensus on law and ethics of self-driving cars hitting pedestrians.
A beautiful, special Ferrari 458 Speciale minding its own business was horrifyingly mutilated at Katie’s Cars & Coffee in Great Falls, Virginia this morning when a Mercedes 380 SL parallel parked on the face of the $300,000 supercar. Children were watching!
Incredibly, nobody was killed in this dramatic, action-movie-looking wreck that took place at Wallerfield International Raceway in Trinidad and Tobago on July 24.

The Tesla Model X crash that occurred in Montana on Saturday, which was blamed on Autopilot, now might have a new element to it: the driver might not have had his hands on the wheel at the time of the incident. It remains unclear.

There’s a video of the aftermath of a street race between a Lamborghini and a Ferrari going viral on Facebook now, and it’s about as stark and grim a reminder of the dangers of street racing as you can get.

I tried to stay out of all of the conversation about that now-infamous crash where a car swerved and hit two people on a motorcycle. I followed along as the comments climbed north of 4,000 between the initial post and news of the driver’s arrest. But this thing just keeps nagging at me.
