Last week an ice fisher lowered a waterproof camera into Mayhew Lake in Benton County, Minnesota to look for fish. He was surprised to find a pickup truck instead and called the local sheriff’s department, which realized they’d actually been looking for that thing since March of 2000.
You’re looking at that .GIF and thinking “wow, I can’t believe you just made me watch a man die.” Not only did motorcyclist Paulo Gonçalves not die here, he was up and racing again before the sand stopped flying.
Here’s my thought process while watching this video: “Helicopter crash? What helicopter crash? There’s no way that helicopter’s going to crash. There’s nothing for it to even hit. I mean, just look at – OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD.”
Not sure if the guy driving this Scania semi-truck simply didn’t see these railroad crossing lights or if he fancied himself some kind of badass, but I think this sensational collision settles the “train versus truck” debate with some finality.
China’s smog problem isn’t just a health hazard—it’s a traffic safety one as well. According to news reports, a massive pileup crash involving at least 33 vehicles traveling on the Taichang Expressway in Tianjin left six people dead and four hospitalized.
The Baja 1000 course is full of surprises, and even a careful prerun of the course can’t prepare you for every bump on the way. But if you do see a jump, you’ve got to commit and fly far or slow down enough to roll over it gently. Half-assing gets you a face full of dirt.
Crashing is a part of motorcycling, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t suck. While the words “crash” and “accident” are often interchangeable, they’re still learning experiences just like the rest of our time on two wheels. What have you learned from hitting the deck?
The 2015 Baja 1000 ran from Ensenada to about halfway down the Mexican peninsula and back again. The first real turn of the race was this drop into the wash in the middle of town, where this poor guy couldn’t quite make it off-road before crashing.
Kogalymavia Flight 9268, belonging to a Russian airline known as Metrojet, was an Airbus A321 beginning its route from Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt to St. Petersburg, Russia when it went missing just 23 minutes after departure.

Matt Brabham is a professional driver in the Stadium Super Trucks racing series. But even legends forget to turn at pivotal moments sometimes.
These cars must have been inspired by this sliding truck’s rebellion. They don’t need drivers, they’re off on their own thanks bye!
Every position matters when you’re coming down to the wire in a close, hard-fought season like this year in MotoGP. When Marc Márquez went alongside championship leader Valentino Rossi at Sepang today, Rossi just plain kneed Márquez out of his way. [See update below.]
It’s so miserable outside for Free Practice 3 that Circuit of the Americas told fans not to show up at the circuit until noon. The FIA decided to run Free Practice 3 at 10:00 a.m. as planned, however, and it’s going about as well as you’d think.
Details remain very sketchy, but the BBC has gotten confirmation that an American F/A-18 Hornet has crashed about five miles northwest of RAF Lakenheath airbase in Suffolk.
There’s good reason why cheap fix enthusiast Red Green wasn’t appointed as a Formula One safety expert on the multi-year run of The Red Green Show. Cheap fixes aren’t always the safest, which is why repairing a barrier hit by Romain Grosjean with duct tape is the worst idea I’ve seen during a grand prix yet.
I probably don’t have to tell you that desert racing’s hot. Sometimes it’s so hot your truck catches fire in the middle of a pit stop, but this seriously professional pit crew isn’t about to let a little spontaneous conflagration slow ‘em down.
Four people are dead after an amphibious Duck Tour truck in Seattle slammed into the side of a coach bus on the Aurora bridge in Seattle, Washington. Two passenger vehicles were also involved and several others are said to be critically injured.
Today Jimmie Johnson is known as one of the most talented and most accomplished drivers in NASCAR, having won six of the last nine Cup titles. Back up two decades, though, and he was competing in a completely different arena, proving himself to be a powerhouse in stadium truck racing, and an emerging talent in desert…
