How The Hell Does This Happen, Exactly?

Yesterday morning, in Exeter, NH, this happened. Somehow. No one was hurt, and no one really understands just how this Chevy Spark managed to crash so it ended up doing a nose-stand in the snow. Was a giant playing mumbleypeg with it? Did the owner train it to do yoga? Can it do other tricks? » 2/05/15 9:00pm 2/05/15 9:00pm

Just A Little Reminder Not To Sleep At The Wheel

Sure, I know what you're thinking: sleeping while driving? It's awesome! The gentle thrum of the motor is so soothing, and with today's modern cars, full of those vacuum tubes and rheostats, what could go wrong? And, why even wear a seatbelt for your road nap? » 12/30/14 2:35pm 12/30/14 2:35pm

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

This Hungarian Rally Jump Seems To Be Designed To Flip Cars

Seriously, this thing is actually cruel. It sure is fun watching those Trabants give it a go, though. And how about that badass Metro/Suzuki right at about the two minute mark? » 6/27/14 4:15pm 6/27/14 4:15pm

Watch This Seat Leon Race Car Get Dropped Like A Hot Turd

Oh man. Some poor bastard's probably been fired over this by now. Especially since it looks like a simple length of chain could have prevented all this from happening. That's a Seat Leon Cupra race car, and it's been dropped about two or so stories. Oops. » 6/10/14 10:00pm 6/10/14 10:00pm

Ultramarathon Interrupted By Out Of Control Car

South Africa's Comrades Marathon is the granddaddy of ultramarathons, having been held first in 1921 and nearly every year since inviting runners to traverse the 56 miles between Durban and Pietermaritzburg.

Women Trying To Take A Selfie While Driving Crash Spectacularly

First, let me say that, reportedly, everyone ended up basically okay here. And then, I'd like to add that that driver can really rock a headscarf. But, more importantly, watch the damn road and don't selfie-while-drive. Ever. » 5/20/14 3:34pm 5/20/14 3:34pm

Russian GT-R Crashes Dramatically On Wet Dragstrip

Sure, drag racing is basically just driving in a straight line a short distance, but when you add rain and speed to that equation, it can get pretty hairy. Like it does here. One little misjudged bit of steering input, and someone's thinking "CRAP" with a backwards "R." » 9/17/13 5:20pm 9/17/13 5:20pm

Terribly Unlucky Man Has Home Set On Fire By Lightning And Viper Crash

Someone really, really doesn't want John Anwyl in his house. Over the weekend, a Viper lost control and crashed into his house, setting it partially on fire. This is following a lightning strike last August that burned off part of his roof. Take the hint, buddy. » 5/20/13 2:44pm 5/20/13 2:44pm

Bizzarre Motorcycle-Bicycle Wreck Makes People Look Like Toys

Is planking still a thing? Are the kids still planking? Or are they crumping or doing horse or using their HAM radios now? I can't tell. Anyway, if planking's still a thing, these guys just won it. Oh, and no one was hurt, so we can be amazed at how nuts this is with clear consciences. » 4/30/13 2:04pm 4/30/13 2:04pm
