Watch this lucky tow truck driver escape a sliding car

Yesterday, we had reported that this week's snow and ice storm in the Southeast had claimed 13 lives, but this scary traffic camera video from Mobile, AL proves just how easily it could have reached 14. A tow truck driver cleaning up the ice-related crash of a Toyota Tacoma on I-10 found himself just inches away from an out-of-control Jeffrey N. Ross

Tiny train collides with actual car to surprising effect

Let this video be a lesson that no matter how small – or deserted – train tracks appear to be, you should never stop on them. The video was shot this week at Hermann Park in Houston, TX as families rode around the sprawling park in a scaled-down train. For some reason (we suspect waiting for a parking spot), the driver of this Honda Accord stopped on the tracks, and the train did not have enough time to stop as it rounded the corne

The Euro NCAP just tested a recent batch of new cars including the 2014 BMW i3, and the EV Bimmer scored less-than-perfect results.

Watch this LSR Honda Insight crash at 190 mph in the desert

Like any form of motorsports, attempts at breaking land speed records are inherently dangerous.

Robby Gordon demonstrates a textbook Stadium Super Truck rollover

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.

Go-kart driver can't go over the top

"If at first you don't succeed, try, try again." That must be the motto of the go-kart driver shown in this video. After an attempt to pass on the outside of a dirt oval track, he has a hard introduction with the wall (in what appears to be the worst possible way), but quickly shakes it off and resumes racing.

Porsche drivers escape this horrific VIR crash unscathed

There is no doubting the fact that it takes nerves of steel to be a racecar driver, but the same can also be said for motorsports photographers. Case in point: The American Le Mans Series Oak Tree Grand Prix at the Virginia International Raceway where two Porsche 911 racecars crash hard into the tire barrier, but the dedicated cam

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 the former communist country. While we're sure th

What caused this parking lot accident?

By this point, we shouldn't be surprised by the oodles of random dashcam videos floating around the Internet, but this car crash definitely caught us off guard. As the video shows, a vehicle slowly navigating through a tight parking lot, and then we see what appears to be a Hyundai Getz pulling into the lot with a full head of steam before hitting our camera-mounted driver head-on.

Early Monday morning, 25-year-old Vevencia Bellgarde was allegedly drunk driving when her Jeffrey N. Ross

Watch a semi-truck go airborne and explode on impact

Dash cams have caught some pretty amazing events on camera, as the unforgettable sights of the meteor that exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia proved in February. As another example, a trucker driving through Greensburg, Indiana, had his dash cam rolling when another semi truck caught major air over a freeway before crashing down in a ball of flames.
