The monster truck responsible for making part of the audience have their lives flash before their eyes at this rally in Reynosa goes by the name of Perro Loco. Skip to the 1:18 mark to see this Crazy Dog almost go off its leash.

Boulder Close Call

Boulder Close Call

So you’re driving along when a rock comes flying at your car. We’re not talking about one of those little pebbles that dings your windshield here, we’re talking the boulder from the beginning of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Helicopter Drop Test

Helicopter Drop Test

NASA recently conducted a series of tests in which a helicopter fuselage was dropped from about 30 feet to help improve safety in crash landings. Frankly, it looks like kind of a fun ride. Or maybe a quick way down from a treehouse.

Pursued by a Bobcat

Pursued by a Bobcat

Some say this tale of Bobcat meets Hyundai is “the Most Ridiculous Road Accident in the History of Mankind.” That’s pretty overstated in our opinion but we were definitely still scratching our heads for a while after seeing the crash.

Car Jump Fail/Win

Car Jump Fail/Win

A high school long jumper attempts to jump over his friend’s car, smacking into it on the way. Incredibly, he lands on his feet, but only after smashing its windshield. Needless to say, do not try this at home.

How Not to Ride your Scooter

How Not to Ride your Scooter

It’s bad enough that the guy in the white shirt ran his scooter into a van (top center), a car, a bike, and then a truck, but his tragedy quickly turns into slapstick comedy when he pulls away and has a far more humiliating finish.

Dynamite Dynamometer

Dynamite Dynamometer

You know this video isn’t going to end well as this guy straps his precious Mustang GT 500 down and pushes the envelope on the dynamometer. Though it doesn’t fail in exactly the way we expected.

R/C Mid-Air Collision

R/C Mid-Air Collision

Tragic footage of a gorgeous R/C airplane smacking into an R/C helicopter at the Santa Clara County Model Aircraft Sky Park. Proof positive that the U.S. government sequester shouldn’t have cut back on air traffic controllers.

Crash Landing POV

Crash Landing POV

Jonathan Fielding captured this first-person video of his family’s harrowing ride in a four-seat Cessna, as it experienced engine problems and crashed into a snowy field in Utah. Incredibly, nobody was injured.

One Lucky Biker

One Lucky Biker

A moped rider is sitting a bit too far forward when an 18-wheeler has a little trouble making the turn. We’re guessing this guy had to go change his underwear immediately. (Thanks Ray!)

Volvo FH Emergency Braking

Volvo FH Emergency Braking

An impressive demo of Volvo Truck’s Collision Warning and Emergency Braking System which is able to alert a driver and automatically stop a truck, preventing rear-end crashes at up to 70km/h.

Crazy Plane Spinout

Crazy Plane Spinout

A pilot ends up putting his plane into a flat spin, causing it to stall and spin uncontrollably 26 times as it drops 2800 feet in just 40 seconds. Thankfully, he survived his upside-down emergency landing.

Biker vs. Mattress

Biker vs. Mattress

One very lucky (and skilled) motorcycle rider came inches from being thrown from his bike by a flying mattress that wasn’t tied down properly. This is why we avoid such junk trucks like the plague.

Nitro Circus: Crash Reel 2012

Nitro Circus: Crash Reel 2012

The extreme bad-asses of Nitro Circus defy the odds every day, pulling off incredible stunts on their bikes, trikes, cars, skateboards and motorcycles. And sometimes they fall down. (Thanks Dallin!)

Super Pedestrian

Super Pedestrian

Look, ahead of you! It’s a scammer! It’s a lucky passerby! No, it’s super pedestrian! He’s stronger than a car, more powerful than a car and (almost) able to leap a car in a single bound.

23 Brushes with Death

23 Brushes with Death

A collection of twenty three ridiculously close calls between man, machine, animal and the occasional act of plain old stupidity. Every single one of these people should go buy a Powerball ticket.

How Not to Commit Fraud

How Not to Commit Fraud

Unscrupulous opportunists are constantly trying to pull one over on everyday citizens and their insurance policies, but this guy’s attempt to scam a driver who “hit” him is just downright hilarious.

Branch Close Call

Branch Close Call

A driver comes within inches of disaster when a large tree limb drops from the sky just inches from their car. We’re even more impressed with the guy who doesn’t even flinch as it drops in front of him.

Sunroof Flip

Sunroof Flip

We all know we’re supposed to wear seatbelts when driving. Apparently this guy missed that day at school, and learned his lesson the hard way. Amazingly he walked away unscathed.

Deer vs. Corvette

Deer vs. Corvette

(Graphic Footage) You’d never think that while speeding around a track in your Z06 you’d have to be on the lookout for deer, but this driver is lucky to have survived this horrific impact. Poor deer.

Manhole SUV Flip

Manhole SUV Flip

A Land Rover drives down the street over a manhole cover when explosive gasses below cause not only the cover to fly into the air, but the entire vehicle. Looks like a movie stunt, but it’s real life.

Impromptu Bus Stop

Impromptu Bus Stop

We’re not sure if this Chinese teen intended on rolling out of the back of this bus, but from the way he takes off after the bus as it drives off, we’re guessing no. Fortunately, he wasn’t injured.

Insane Truck Save

Insane Truck Save

This truck sinks deeper and deeper into the water, and looks like it’s going down for the count. But jump to about 1:20 to see its miraculous recovery from an almost certain watery grave.

Near Miss

Near Miss

You’ll have one of those “ho-ly crap” moments about 20 seconds into this clip, as a driver literally has a near-death experience on an icy road in Russia, and manages to emerge unscathed.

Crash Landing

Crash Landing

Igor Kuser was practicing spiral landings with a parachute. Someone told him to practice doing it over a lake. Now he knows why. Fortunately he only got knocked out for a few seconds and is okay.
