On American highways, the big beasts that haul our crates of Meow Mix and Spanx to fine retailers usually have names like Peterbuilt and Mack. Almost none of the usual 18-wheelers we see in the US are branded with Ford's blue oval. That's not the case in other parts of the world, and it's for them that Ford's unveiled…
This Russian tanker carrying 18 tons of fuel shows it's really not that hard. The 12-wheeler takes a roundabout slightly too fast, and everything comes tumbling down.
One silver Eunos Roadster (JDM MX-5) is closely following a friend's red Miata on North Carolina's famous Deal's Gap. They don't know a 53' Semi is about to block their lane. The ensuing crash is a lesson in tailgating.
It's scary enough to think of an 18-wheeler rolling over and plowing straight for you in your relatively light, nimble car. One Canadian managed to cheat death and dodge an 18-wheeler while in a truck of his own.
A tow truck driver's attempt to remove a snow-bound truck in Norway went very wrong yesterday when both vehicles slid off the side of a cliff. Amazingly, everyone survived.
A Target 18-wheeler ended up off-target near Monticello, Minnesota this morning when the driver apparently lost control and plunged off the roadway into a frozen lake. State Police are trying to figure out how this happened.
This starts out looking like a nightmare: an out-of-control truck on the verge of swinging itself into the roadside weeds. But then it keeps being out of control, and then you realize it's very much in control.

Last week's photo set of a Pedobear-adorned Miata driving under an 18-wheeler drew the ire of many (including us) for its sheer stupidity. The driver of the Miata agrees it was a dumb choice and has a message for all of you.
This video of an officer crushed by an 18-wheeler serves as a reminder that our brave officers are sometimes guilty of the same driving mistakes the rest of us make. We're just not recorded every time we drive.
Give credit to trucker Larry Armstrong, he seems to be taking the slow incineration of his 18-wheeler on a Dallas freeway yesterday in stride. Perhaps it was because the truck was empty, or maybe this just happens to him often.
The driver and a passenger in this 18-wheeler somehow survived a 100-foot drop off an icy bridge when the truck lost control in Southern Wisconsin this morning. Another amazing photo of the crash below. Update: One person did die.
This unbelted Turkish truck driver falsely assumed the mass of his tractor-trailer was enough to protect him in the event of a crash. Those physics — along with the driver— go out the window when hit by another truck. Ouch.
