We’ve all had the occasional shopping cart fender bender while coming around a blind corner at the end of an aisle. But here’s what would happen if you were trying to speed through a grocery store at 72 miles per hour, got distracted by a free sample, and then slammed your cart head-on into a concrete wall.

Last month, a driver swerved into the bike lane on Grand Street in Williamsburg and knocked Matthew van Ohlen off of his bike, then ran over his body and dragged him 20 to 30 feet, killing him.

Former Formula One driver Niki Lauda is still a fixture at races, chiming in on every controversial move of the front-runners as the non-executive chairman of the Mercedes F1 team. He’s lucky to be here at all. Forty years ago today, a horrifying crash at the Nürburgring nearly took his life.
A restart attempt at today’s NASCAR Brickyard 400 ended up bringing out the red flag because it made such a huge mess, which led to three more restart attempts. The No. 19 of Carl Edwards got loose on the restart, causing a big chain-reaction pile-up that collected a large chunk of the field.
