The four occupants of a minivan in Michigan were in for a terrifying ride early in the morning on January 7. Their minivan got lodged under the back of a semi's trailer, and the vehicle was drug 16 miles along Interstate 75. During that time, the driver was on the phone with 911 but couldn't exactly say where the stricken van was because of the snowy conditions.
It may not seem so long ago that Ferrari introduced the 458 Italia. But it's been on the market a solid 5 years since its launch in 2009, which makes it not only the oldest model in the company's lineup, but one of the oldest in its segment, the Lamborghini Huracan and McLaren 650S just having been launched in the past couple of months. So while a solitary Ferrari playing in the snow might otherwise seem like little more than an unlikely place for it to be, its chronology suggests the crew from
With between four and six hundred horsepower channeled to the rear wheels from a V8 or V12 engine mounted up front, an Aston Martin – any Aston Martin, really – might not seem like the smartest choice for driving on ice and snow. But that can also make it the most fun, and the most enlightening to experience.
Say what you will about its smallest SUVs, but you have to hand it to Suzuki: the likes of the Samurai, Sidekick and Vitara were doing the little-sport-ute-that-could thing long before most of the rest of the industry caught on. And the formula remains relevant enough that Suzuki is still selling the same basic Samurai overseas as the Jimny.
Michigan man was frustrated over snow piles around wife's car
One man took his winter weather frustration a little too far, shooting out the windshield of a front-end loader while it worked to clear the parking lot of an apartment complex in Pittsfield Township, Mich.
We reported yesterday on the couple inches of snow that paralyzed the transportation networks of southern cities like Atlanta, which are ill-equipped to handle any measure of snow, and now the results of the chaos are beginning to roll in: 13 people are dead across the region, nine of whom were in traffic accidents.
Living in the North means learning to deal with seasonal snow fall. It means practicing in an empty parking lot when the first few inches fall. Equipping snow tires and knowing just how quickly one can safely go when the white stuff starts falling is seemingly ingrained into the DNA of Yankee drivers. That, along with our fleets of snow plows and salt trucks, makes it easy to shake our heads and chuckle when our Southern friends get a dusting of powder that shuts down entire towns. What's happen
From the deserts of Baja to the hills of Pikes Peak to stadiums across the country, there's any number of places you can go to watch off-road racing trucks do their thing. But with Frozen Rush, Red Bull has skipped past all of them and headed to the ski hill.
With winter in full swing across a number of northern states and many Americans driving home after spending the holidays with family, the icy and snowy roads are being given no shortage of attention. But a new plan from the National Center for Atmospheric Research and funded by the US Department of Transportation is given authorities new abilities when it comes to combatting dangerous winter roads.
To say that Abdullah ibn Al-Hussein comes from a prestigious family would be one heck of an understatement. The current ruler of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Abdullah II comes from the house of Hashem that claims its descendency from Mohammed himself. His ancestors have sat on the thrones of Transjordan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and parts of Saudi Arabia. The bottom line is that, whatever "it" is, Abdullah has people to do it for him.
With winter kicking off, people across the country are coming to grips with that horrible white substance we call snow. And while we, as motorists, might be sick of the stuff already, some college students in Oregon saw it as an opportunity to have some fun, although as things are wont to do in college, matters got out of hand rather quickly.
