My friend once lost control of his friend's car and skidded off the road. He was driving in the desert though, and the car smoothly plowed into a soft bank of sand. Basically, the car was fine. Few drivers are so lucky.

Take a look at Jeremy Foley spearing off the road at the Pikes Peak hillclimb last year. It's what it looks like to drive off of a cliff. Foley and his crew built a roll cage strong enough for the impact, but man does that not look fun.


What do you think would be the scariest place to have a car crash?
