    Video: Rally accident brings timely death to brick building
    1385598060

    There are crashes and then there are crashes. This is emphatically the latter, as a competitor in a Belgian event partially demolishes a brick building with the help of his Opel Ascona rally car. Next time, we'd recommend a backhoe, bulldozer or perhaps some dynamite. Despite the aftermath of ...

    Video: Man nearly killed by car in Russia, no dash cam involved
    1385487000

    Russia. Cars are just more dangerous in Russia. You might disagree with that; argue that it's just the roads of the former Soviet Union that will kill you (and to be fair, there's plenty evidence to suggest that's true). Watch this video, though. It's the cars that are the real killers. This ...

    Video: In Russia, road crashes into you!
    1385425740

    Russia can be a scary place to drive. Between the tank crossings, meteors, bears, geysers, bus drivers, lightning strikes, semis and otherwise generally insane accidents, we get the sense that you'd be taking your life in your hands every time you climbed behind the wheel. With all the insanity ...

    Video: WRC codriver biffs pace notes, car ends upside-down in a crappy predicament
    1385080200

    Professional rally driving is one of the toughest gigs going in motorsports. High speeds, uneven surfaces, varied weather conditions and the occasional flub from driver or co-driver can (and do) conspire to wreak all manner of havoc. Just a fraction too much steering lock, selecting the wrong ...

    Report: Mazda CX-5 in auto-brake accident on Japanese test drive
    1384441200

    As we slowly march towards a world where our cars will drive for us, there will be mishaps. Systems will act up, not behave has intended or we'll simply forget to turn them on. We all remember when Volvo tested the S60's City Safety system. Now Mazda has had an issue of its own. During a test of ...

    Video: Robby Gordon demonstrates a textbook Stadium Super Truck rollover
    1384304400

    Any time you strap yourself into a race car (or truck, or kart, or... well, anything), you know there's a chance of crashing. And when it's a stadium truck you're piloting, if you don't come perilously close to crashing on every single lap, you're probably not in a position to win. Just ask ...

    1383932700

    Planning a trip to the Nürburgring any time soon? This video might make you, at the very least, reconsider taking a super-expensive car (or bike) to the legendary German track. Yes, this is an eight-minute video of just crashes. It's actually kind of hypnotizing to watch. Now, it's ...

    Video: Tow truck driver hilariously bad at righting a flipped Mazda
    1383177660

    Can rolling your car get any worse? The correct answer is yes, as this poor soul found out when he rolled his Mazda3 onto its side. Calling a tow truck might be a logical, post-rollover move, but in this case, it kind of made the situation worse. We don't want to give away just what happened, so ...

    Video: Quick-witted driver avoids airborne barrel-rolling pickup
    1380931320

    Dashcam videos can be divvied up into two categories - "I can't believe that just happened," and "You're lucky to be alive." The former is usually quite funny and entertaining, while the latter is usually kind of scary; involving a close call between our camera car and something quite ...

    Video: Aventador gets a split personality in Brooklyn
    1380029580

    If you're going to drive a Lamborghini like it's meant to be driven, you'd better make sure there's nothing else around. New York City most definitely does not qualify, as the driver of this white Aventador discovered the hard way. Caught in motion by two closed-circuit cameras in Mill Basin, ...

    Video: GT-R driver walks away from terrifying dragstrip accident
    1379444340

    With all-wheel drive, launch control and a dual-clutch transmission, the Nissan GT-R may be easier to manage than most supercars. But that doesn't mean that dragging one on a wet strip is a good idea. Filmed at the Unlimited 500+ drag race in Moscow, Russia, this video depicts a pair of GT-Rs ...

    Video: Huge rack causes roadway mishap

    Russia. As much as that sprawling, Eurasian country has given us, nothing – not even vodka – can rank above the country singlehandedly turning the dash cam into a spectator sport. Thanks to various safety issues, those diminutive little video cameras are a necessary part of life in ...

    1376335980

    Has Shock and Awe ever been used in firefighting? Probably not, as fires aren't really bothered by the psychological effects implicit in Shock and Awe warfare. But if any form of firefighting qualified for that well known military doctrine, it'd be aerial firefighting, as proven by this video of ...

    1375795800

    Tony Stewart is proving that that things we love might not always be good for us. After a big tumble across an Ontario short track, the driver of the number 14 car and co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing had another incident, this time at a half-mile dirt track in Oskaloosa, IA. And unlike that last ...

    1375375440

    Tony Stewart is a racecar driver. There aren't really any ifs, ands or buts about that. Unlike the sheltered stars of other sports that would rarely be caught dead around the lower levels, Stewart actively seeks out midget and sprint races, often on dirt tracks around the country. Stewart got ...
