For the amount of time this dilapidated car keeps the police pursuit at bay, we assumed there's some super spy behind the wheel. Nope! Turns out it is just four party boys who're pretty determined to stay out of a Russian slammer. The real credit goes to the hardy Little Lada That Could car hat kept together for this insane marathon police chase.
The sidewalk should be a safe place for bicyclists and pedestrians to cross a busy street but it wasn't the case for these two people.
A bicyclist in China was stopped on the sidewalk waiting to cross the street when a vehicle came rolling over him. Luckily, the bike rider, the driver, and the passenger were not seriously injured in the scary looking crash. View Now
Only. In. Russia.
We assumed that by now, after all the INSANE videos coming out of their country, Russians would be totally prepared for bizarre accidents on the road, like this wedding guest who was having a little TOO much fun without his seatbelt on. Like the kids say, it's all fun and games until your car flips on you.
But because it's Russia, this guy also survives!
The rise of drivers using dash cameras has led to an increase in footage of intersection collisions. A taxi driver in Canada entered the intersection when the light was not green. The taxi was struck by a car from oncoming traffic and sent flying into the driver whose dash camera caught this accident on camera. View Now
This storied Alaskan rafting guide has only ever lost a SINGLE rafter overboard. Whatever rapid they just went over in the Nenana River must have been insane because count the bobbing heads--there's SEVEN people in the water. The most our freezing and battered friends can do is try to avoid all those dangerous rocks shooting towards them before they're finally rescued by the two rafters who managed to stay afloat.
Things could've been worse... at least there wasn't a BEAR swimming beside them, which is exactly what happens in the second video.
Except on insurance claims, being "right" means little on the road. Even the best drivers can find themselves in horrible accidents because OTHER drivers are careless. Find yourself behind motorcycle handlebars and even driving around town can become a life-or-death crisis. Try it without the proper safety gear and you're flirting with fate.
Case in point, these two harrowing crashes that could've ended much worse had not every rider been wearing helmets and riding gear. View Now
There are few attacks more brutish and heartless than the one targeted at this poor elderly couple as they rode home in a taxi after a pleasant evening at the theatre. Months later, Birmingham South police have FINALLY arrested the group of five teens that allegedly threw the bricks that left the 70-year-old woman with a fractured skull.
We think the hilarious karma of this second video almost makes up for the belated justice in the first video. View Now
Call it the Sixth Sense, call it Intuition, but we heard alarm bells ringing in these two painful-looking motorcycle collisions caught on camera LONG before either driver did.
Our first rider appears to be correctly doing everything you learn in a textbook, but the Dad in our second video could have stopped this nasty father-and-son motorcycle reunion if he had simply gone with the flow of traffic. View Now
Drones can capture beautiful footage, but they can also easily crash for both technical and environmental reasons. This drone pilot recorded video of a tower in Detroit. Suddenly, the drone lost remote control signal, flew right into the tower, and then crashed into the ground below. View Now
Out with the old and in with the new!
Instead of spinning silly donuts barefoot on our gas-guzzling motorbikes like this first daring shirtless guy, your epic future could be soaring above traffic (and giving free haircuts) on the Scorpion hoverbike! Russian startup HoverSurf just publically tested this dazzling motorbike-drone mix and our anticipation is soaring. View Now
Nope, those drivers aren't trying to kill you... but their trailers are!
Seriously, we don't know what was going through the metal minds of these trailers when they decided to pull their own shenanigans on busy highways. Thankfully, nobody was hurt when our first Trailer Gone Wild goes rogue in Australia and disconnects itself from the vehicle towing it or when our second trailer almost topples its load onto some unfortunate car in America.

We see a lot of scary videos that leave us scratching our heads wondering HOW in the world these critters and people escape these various situations alive.
This Spanish pooch abandoned for hours got himself stuck between balcony railings in an attempt to escape his third-story prison. He channeled his inner Jackie Chan and miraculously lands softly on a first-floor awning after he dramatically wriggles free.
A human chain and sheer luck also saved these three people trapped in a car during summer monsoon floods in India
We had to keep reminding ourselves that everyone walked away from these crashes because they're so horrifying to watch.
Our hearts go out to this poor little girl in Russia who's violently thrown out of her family's SUV when it hits a pothole. Apparently, she gets up several minutes later only bruised! View Now
Cutting down trees is nearly a science--do X to a tree so it'll fall in Y direction. But for everyone who's ever put an axe or chainsaw to a tree, the second worst moment in the world is the one when you realise you SCREWED UP.
This first poor guy almost sacrificed his roof with his careless mistake. But the worst feeling comes when the tree suddenly decides it's coming down NOW. Pro lumberjacks call it the "Crazy Barber Chair," but it'll snip off more than just your hair!

Let's go boating, it'll be fun, he said!
This crewmember almost gets a saltwater bath after his captain turns their stalled boat right into a big wave about to come crashing down. He barely hangs as the boat literally jumps the wave and sends him flying high above the deck. For a second, this crazy stunt reminds us of that scary wave scene from our favorite movie of 2000, Prefect Storm.

We're scratching our heads at these folks. Really.
This first guy's modus operandi is pretty typical: a vengeful Russian lover confronts his ex. The astounding part of this violent episode is that this poor girl was trapped with this guy for almost TWO hours before police managed to free her.
We can't even explain this second dysfunctional criminal couple, who set the standard for BIZARRE as they visited a Texas gas station. View Now
Our "spidey sense" tingles any time you throw a bunch of guys on motorcycles.
You don't have to wait long! This particular group of riders was on their way to Bike Night in Denver, Colorado in stop-and-go freeway traffic. One overzealous rider pops a wheelie at the worst time possible and crashes into a car before he can stop his motorcycle. Watch the whole incident here. View Now
The streets can be a very dangerous place for both pedestrians and drivers. Two women were crossing the street in Ukraine when they were both struck by a motorcyclist. One woman sustained a concussion and the other suffered serious head trauma and internal injuries.
Then, this moped rider was splitting lanes when a driver ahead opened the car door and the moped slammed into it. The driver tried to help the moped rider get back on the bike and accidentally sent the moped flying into an SUV. View Now
In every major crisis in American history, the people from whom we'd least expect help from often become our greatest allies.
Instead of flipping the bird when he ran into the trapped trucker causing the terrible rush hour traffic congestion in Rhode Island, Neal Musk does what few of us would do and gives helpful advice to the frustrated truck driver. View Now
They'll be laughing about this in a few years.... but this family got a one-of-a-kind vacation story in Florida when their hotel room door knob locked as they were heading out to the pool. Usually, you have to pay for this kind of "Escape The Room" lock-in but this family (and very outspoken mom) was NOT entertained.
The door stayed shut for 40 minutes until the fire department finally knocked down the door. We really hope they got a new room! View Now
Feast your eyes on this awesome chrome Lamborghini Huracán while you can--It won't last long! In fact, keep watching and you'll see $200,000 disappear in shiny chrome chunks as this supercar begins hydroplaning on a Russian highway.
Even if it isn't a total loss as well, this embarrassing BMW 335i drifting fail and fender-bender in Germany will hurt you deep down inside.

These bloody eyes are the temporary grisly souvenirs of a high-speed brush with death.
Disaster strikes thousands of feet in the air when championship Norwegian aerobatic hangglider Jon Gjerde finds himself in a dizzying spin after his hangglider snaps in half and plummets to the ground. Seconds before a deadly blackout, Jon opens his emergency parachute above his panicked audience at the Norwegian Extreme Sports Week festival. View Now
There is a common stereotype that portrays people from England as calm, cool, and collected even in a crisis. This car crash victim's reaction to this nasty accident totally perpetuates that stereotype. The camera footage shows that the road appears clear until the driver passes a blind hill and realizes there is a car on his side of the road trying to pass another car. He lost control of the vehicle trying to avoid a collision and his car flipped on its side. After exiting the vehicle he seems bummed that his car was totaled but very calm considering what just happened to him. View Now
Like any parent with small ones knows, even a second away can mean disaster.
We can't imagine how devastated the parents of this critically injured Turkish toddler are after their nanny left a small child alone in a third-story apartment room after opening the windows to let in fresh air. CCTV cameras capture everything.
Some things don't change even when your kids grow up. This jarring footage from Mexico shows what happens when you mix teens at a music festival with a platform on a forklift.
Sometimes the universe seems out to get you. Turns out you're not paranoid.
This insane Belgian dashcam proves that even if you're doing EVERYTHING right and are the safest driver on the planet, you can still find yourself in a freak, one-in-a-million accident.
There's a type of luck you DO create, like when you try to match your sedan against three motorbikes in a high-speed street race in Mexico.
This accident stands out among the many collisions that RightThisMinute sees every day because of its sheer drama and carnage.
Like so many others, it all begins with a wrong-way-driver who's trying to pass a van in Lembang, West Java. Ahead, a motorcycle swerves out of its way and its driver flies off of the bike. In a panic, the wrong-way driver plows through the riderless motorcycle, flips his car on its side and rolls out of sight. View Now
