Ah, street racing. It’s bad and stupid and can lead to tragic consequences for all involved. But sometimes it leads to hilarious divine justice for the people who try it, like this internet gem from way way back in 2003.
Last week 35-year-old Dealio Lockhart caused a massive crash on a California highway when he lost control of the Dodge Challenger he was racing against another idiot in a Dodge Charger. The accident left three dead, and charges against Lockhart have been upgraded from vehicular manslaughter to triple murder which…
I’m not sure why racing on a public road full of other cars and trucks doesn’t seem like a terrible idea to people, but it is. If simple logic doesn’t get the concept across, maybe this wreck, caused by a race between a Challenger and a Charger, will. Three are dead, and the carnage of the multi-car wreck closed…
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. So, you’re warned: the video below, while not strictly bloody, is very disturbing, and has what appears to be a…
For today’s reminder of why we can’t have nice things, watch this dingus peel out of a car show all the way over a curb and into a crowd of onlookers. And hey, look, he managed to cut somebody off in the process. At least we can laugh about it because nobody was hurt, apparently.
Almost four years ago to the day, one of my friends died.
Illegal street racing is really terrible. If you keep at it long enough, you won’t end up a hero. You’ll end up in jail, injured, or possibly worse. Some people realize this and stop participating. Others realize this but they just can’t stop.
I present to you Street Racing Idiots in Three Acts.
And now the drift community is trying to shut the whole scene down.
Long, dreary, rainy drives on long commutes sure are dull, right? Wouldn’t it be much more fun to spice them up with a race against a car that dares to have roughly the same color scheme as you? Sure it would. But it’s not a good idea, as this Mustang driver and an innocent street lamp found out.
Police are on the hunt for two street racers in Florida following the death of 18-year-old Julie Michele Castor. According to eyewitness accounts, the two drivers were “racing in and out of traffic,” causing Castor to crash her 2006 Toyota Corolla. Castor survived the initial crash and exited the vehicle, but was hit…
Another week, another street race. This time, a Ferrari 458 and a Porsche were allegedly racing in Los Angeles when the Ferrari clouted a wall, ruining the $250,000 car.
Driving absurdly fast on public roads with general traffic on them is a colossally stupid idea, and this time it looks like the car agreed, committing suicide instead of being part of continued stupidity. The Kansas Highway Patrol arrested a man yesterday for going 176 MPH on Interstate 35, and caught him because his…
While Henry Michael Gevorgyan has been charged with two counts of murder in the wake of a Los Angeles street racing crash that killed two people, his lawyer and defenders on social media say he wasn't the one driving the Mustang that lost control and plowed into a crowd of people.
A man police say lost control of his Ford Mustang during a Los Angeles street race and killed two people after crashing into a crowd surrendered to authorities on Saturday night, according to news reports.
Los Angeles Police say they have identified the driver of a Mustang involved in a street racing crash that killed two people and seriously injured one more. ABC7 has also obtained video of the moment the crash happened.
Police in Los Angeles are seeking the driver of a Ford Mustang and witnesses after they say the vehicle lost control and plowed into a crowd of people during a street race, killing two and seriously injuring another.
One of the big misconceptions about street racing is that it's all done by idiot kids in Honda Civics. Another is that if you have a nice car, then you must be a good driver. But here we have a Nissan GT-R racing against a Ferrari 458 in Taiwan, until everything completely and inevitably falls apart.
Street racing is so dumb. Seriously. It's one of the dumbest and most irresponsible things you can do in a car. Yet the drivers of this Hellcat and GT-R decide they'd rather risk the lives of everyone around them to street race. Thankfully, the cops were also there and they put a stop to it.
