Good god! Sad the kid died, that would have been one tremendous ta-daaa at the end.
2006-09-24 09:53:18 AM  
I wonder if the car's giant spoiler, huge exhaust and after-market parts stickers were damaged?

Triple insane stunt!

Darwin nods with approval.

It appears they made the Max X list ok.

'FHP says he was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash."
2006-09-24 12:23:34 PM  
That'll bring its resale value down for sure.
2006-09-24 12:24:17 PM  
No seatbelt = certain death when you're doing some serious stunts
2006-09-24 12:25:09 PM  
I'm sure they had Whelan Jennings playing in the tape deck.
2006-09-24 12:27:16 PM  
A Honda Accord somehow went airborne

hmmm...ya think he might have been speeding a little bit?

Through the sign, off the wall, over the trees, off the gas station, through the payphone...
nuttin' but roof.

/dumbass. why do you think they call it a wing
2006-09-24 12:27:30 PM  
Who is 'Whelan'??? Is that the person who will hand this farktard his Darwin award?

Those crazy stunt junkies.

Ole! MF

[Florida] tag must be on vacation in Ohio.
2006-09-24 12:29:53 PM  

Only if it was a jump car, pally.
2006-09-24 12:32:00 PM  
Cunning stunt bonus!
2006-09-24 12:32:23 PM  
Ten bucks says this car had a Folger's exhaust system and a stereo that goes whoomp-sss-whoomp-sss-whoomp-sss.

[Florida] tag must be on vacation in Ohio.

Damn you TF'ers - I wanted to say that!
2006-09-24 12:36:40 PM  
Anyone else think these reporters have their priorities outta whack? the "Oh and BTW, the kid died" tacked on at the end sorta makes the story about the stunt driving, not the tragedy. I mean, on Fark is one thing, but in mainstream media?
2006-09-24 12:37:00 PM  
Nothin but net.

Behold, the power of the Type R sticker!
2006-09-24 12:41:18 PM

dude had a crapload of hot friends.
2006-09-24 12:44:14 PM  
The Aristocrats!
2006-09-24 12:45:47 PM  
Looking at that wreck, I don't think a seatbelt would've made a whole lot of difference.
"Whelan?" GET A ROPE!
2006-09-24 12:45:52 PM  
did you ever take it off any sweet jumps?
2006-09-24 12:49:17 PM  
OMG that poor Honda! Look at all it went through.

oh, and the kid died.

Great Reporting...
I think we should round up every "local" newscaster in the country and surgically castrate them. With chainsaws.
2006-09-24 12:51:12 PM  
The car "somehow got airborne"? It's Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!
2006-09-24 12:53:13 PM  
This thread is useless without hi-res slow motion video.
2006-09-24 12:53:35 PM  
The town's head Sheriff, Mr. Boss Hogg, was unavailable for comment, but his Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane was quoted as saying, "Ohhh! That was a *horrendous* crash!"
2006-09-24 12:54:00 PM  
What a dipshiat. Glad he didn't take anyone else out with him.

/If I knew more details perhaps I could be nicer... but you have to be an ass to make a car do something like that.

Spoilers in the rear of the car provie Downforce on the car. They are also referred to as wings.
2006-09-24 12:56:13 PM  
2006-09-24 12:56:23 PM  
But an accord is an FF car... spoiler = useless on it.

I distinctly heard someone say "Hold my beer and watch this!"
2006-09-24 12:58:23 PM  
I've been airborne before (in a Ford Escort, no less), but twenty feet in to the air? I can't imagine going fast enough in a Honda to do that.
2006-09-24 01:00:09 PM  
DFlor - My Accord's got about 250 horsepower, dunno if I could get it 20 feet into the air, but it could go pretty damn fast if I wanted it to.
2006-09-24 01:02:18 PM  
Dale Ernhardt approves.
2006-09-24 01:02:18 PM  
INTENSIFY FORWARD FIREPOWER! I don't want anything getting through!

18yo boys die in car accidents all that time, but a Honds Accord jumping 20 feet in the air, flipping and destroying all kinds of stuff its path, that doesn't happen every day.
2006-09-24 01:03:45 PM  
I seriously loved this headline. I never say that. But it made me laugh.
2006-09-24 01:04:04 PM  
Anyone else get distracted by the ad on this page for nipple guards? Just plain strange.

The star that burns twice as bright doesn't get to run into farmer's markets at an old age.
