Mazda Gives New Miata To Unlucky Owner Of The First Wrecked 2016 Miata

Interested in feeling a little better about the state of humanity in general? If so, put down those pills and booze and listen to this. Earlier this week, the very first, brand-new 2016 Mazda Miata met its end, by being rear-ended by an F-150 less than a mile from the dealer. Gutting, right? Well, incredibly, Mazda is… » 7/23/15 3:10pm 7/23/15 3:10pm

90 Year-Old Man Realizes Glorious Dream Of Backing Through Garage Door

Let me just be absolutely clear and up front here: I love everything about this story. The old man, the wanton, gleeful destruction, that helmet, everything. It’s a simple story, too: Walter Thomas is 90 years old, and he always wanted to back through his garage door. Family and friends helped make his dream happen,… » 6/04/15 2:16pm 6/04/15 2:16pm

Is This Dashcam Video Of A Man Passing Out While Driving Real?

This video is pretty butt-clenchingly terrifying, with the driver seeming to pass out cold as his Mustang keeps tearing ass forward, through a fence and across a field, until, thankfully, the guy finally wakes up and stops the car. But something seems a bit off about all this — was this genuine, or an elaborate and… » 5/08/15 10:05pm 5/08/15 10:05pm

Jackass Uses Road Rage And Idiocy To Cause Two-Car-Plus-Truck Wreck

The lesson here? You don’t always have to be a dick. Sometimes, you just need to shrug off stupid shit and move on. The alternative can often end up like this, where one initial bad move by that Camaro got compounded into a three-way wreck, taking down an innocent trucker just doing their job. So what happened here? » 4/27/15 2:43pm 4/27/15 2:43pm

Car Wash Employee Forgets What Pedals Do What, Totals Lexus

One of our readers, Mike, is, like many of us, interested in having a clean car. Also like many of us, he took his car to a local car wash. One of those places where you can reasonably expect your car to be cleaned and not rammed through four lanes of traffic, two parked cars, jumped over a curb and into a bush. Mike… » 12/22/14 3:34pm 12/22/14 3:34pm

First Hellcat Sold in Colorado Wrecked An Hour After Purchase

This is one of those things that's certainly unfortunate, but about as surprising as seeing toes emerge from a sock. The first Challenger Hellcat sold in Colorado has been wrecked, and it appears the accident happened about an hour after the car was bought. Somehow, a new-to-the-driver 707 HP car proved tricky to… » 12/22/14 9:00am 12/22/14 9:00am

Teen Crashes SUV Because Idiot Friend Set His Armpit Hair On Fire

There's a good lesson here, and it's one far too often neglected in driver's ed programs: if you don't want to crash, be sure not to set fire to the driver's armpit hair. I know you're thinking "it's just an armpit fire— what's the big deal?" but the truth is it can seriously impair driving, like it did for some young… » 9/17/14 8:00pm 9/17/14 8:00pm

Drunk Car Dealership Manager Wrecks Camaro Into Flaming Mess And Bolts

There's something almost impressive about the scale of drunken mess this manager of a Des Moines Chevy dealer is. Steve Luebke is 57, and normally is only allowed to drive a vehicle with a breathalyzer interlock. The dealership-owned 2010 Camaro he "borrowed" lacked such a device, and is now a smoldering ruin. » 9/15/14 4:37pm 9/15/14 4:37pm

Dump Truck Driver Smashes Skyway, Causes Impressive Level Of Chaos

I'll admit, there's some thing about a really big fiasco that I find appealing. Not a disaster, but more of something along the lines of a good, rich clusterfuck. That's what this drunk dump truck driver accomplished when he slammed his raised dumper right into the Burlington Skyway in Canada. » 8/01/14 2:50pm 8/01/14 2:50pm

Mustang-Loving Kid Pulled Over For Speeding Has Worst Day Ever

Speeding tickets are about as much fun as a combination math test and root canal. This teen with the Sith-style Mustang was pulled over in Montgomery County, Texas, and managed to have an already lousy situation get much worse. Though it could have been much worse still, thanks to a pickup driver who spilled a drink… » 7/28/14 11:00pm 7/28/14 11:00pm
