Mercedes-AMG C63 Driver Hits NYPD Cop After Burnout In Times Square And Somehow Gets Away 16

NYPD officer Ian Wallace was hit by a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG in Times Square on Saturday night at around 11:45pm, with the driver fleeing the scene after causing a lot of commotion on the street.

The black C63 sedan can be seen doing burnouts in traffic prior to stopping right in front of the officer. Instead of pulling over, though, the driver accelerated and swerved, hitting and then sideswiping the 26-year old officer.

According to the NY Post, Wallace was taken to the hospital where he was treated for minor injuries to his back, arms, right leg and right hip.

After escaping from the intersection, the Mercedes blasted its way westbound on West 42nd Street, hitting multiple cars and, eventually, disappearing.

We guess that, in such a crowded place, someone might have seen the Merc’s number plates, but at the time of writing this article, the investigation was ongoing and no arrests had been made.

Pickup Rolls Over After Being Hit By Out-Of-Control Sedan 14

Imagine this: There you are minding your own business and all of a sudden a car comes barreling into you from the opposite side of the road, causing your vehicle to roll over.

It’s an unfortunate scenario that can have dire consequences, especially on the motorway. There’s no info available, but we sincerely hope that no one was seriously hurt in this incident.

As for why that Camry stepped out of line in the first place, your guess is as good as ours. As you can see, the saloon was merging onto the motorway when, suddenly, it catapulted to the opposite lane.

We have no way of knowing, but unless there was some type of mechanical failure at fault, the driver, for some reason, simply lost control of his vehicle and ended up hitting the pickup truck.

Drunk Florida Mom Crashes Into Four Cars, Then Lets Toddler Wander In Traffic 13

A woman from Citrus County, Florida has been arrested after crashing her car with her two-year-old son on board and subsequently resisting arrest.

Brianna Dee Knox, 28, was taken into custody by the Florida Highway Patrol after driving recklessly and crashing into four cars on I-4 at roughly 5 PM on January 9.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports that, after the crash, Knox’s red 2001 Honda broke down under an overpass. Upon exiting the vehicle, Knox started acting “erratically and disturbed”, even letting her young son walk towards traffic while she relieved herself on the side of the road.

The Miami Herald reports that when troopers David Flores and Alain Hernandez arrived on the scene, Knox resisted arrest, kicked one of the officer’s in the chest and hand and violently struggled as they handcuffed her.

Knox was arrested on charges including driving under the influence, battery on a law enforcement officer, leaving the scene of a crash and child neglect. She is being held at the Hills borough County jail on $15,000 bail.

SUV Gets More Hang Time Than Jordan After Hitting Driveway Culvert 12

As if drifting off the side of the road wasn’t bad enough, the driver of this SUV lost control just as the car was approaching a nearby driveway on a New Zealand country road.

Upon hitting the culvert, the SUV is propelled upwards with a lot of force, enough to flip it over and cause what looks like a horrific accident, no matter how you slice it.

According to the description of the video, the car rolled twice after flipping over, and the driver had to be airlifted via helicopter to the hospital with moderate injuries. Let’s hope the seat belt was in use.

We obviously don’t know why the car drifted off the road in the first place, but it’s possible that the driver either fell asleep at the wheel, or he or she might have been distracted by something small, portable and extremely dangerous while driving – a cell phone.

Ultimately, those moderate injuries might prove to be a best case scenario, considering the speed at which this happened.

Armenia To Ban Import And Sales Of Right-Hand Drive Vehicles After JDM Import Surge 12
Jan
Posted by Brad Anderson in MTCIT, Offbeat News, Reports on 01 12th, 2018


The Armenian government will ban the import and sales of right-hand drive cars from April 1 this year due to concerns with the increasing number of RHD vehicles hitting local streets.

Xinhua Net reports that roughly 13,000 right-hand drive vehicles were imported into the country last year, bringing the total number of right-hand drive cars on local streets up to 36,000. This comes despite the fact that Armenia drives on the right side of the road and traditionally uses left-hand drive vehicles.

Authorities have expressed fears that if the current trend towards right-hand drive vehicles continues, the country could be forced to shift to driving on the left side, a change which would be very costly and difficult to achieve. Additionally, the Ministry of Transport, Communication, and Information Technologies (MTCIT) claims that right-hand drive vehicles are dangerous.

Most of the right-hand drive vehicles hitting local streets are being imported from Japan due to their cheap prices and good looks.

Shortly after the announcement was made in December, protestors gathered outside the MTCIT claiming that right-hand drive vehicles are no less safe than their left-hand drive counterparts and are in fact responsible for very few road accidents.

The ban will affect vehicles imported after April 1. Those brought into the country before then will still be allowed on local roads.



Turkmenistan Bans All Black Cars, Existing Owners Must Have Theirs Repainted 12

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Middle East, Offbeat News, Reports on 01 12th, 2018


As far as weird laws go, the prohibition of black cars in Turkmenistan definitely makes it into our Top 10. The country first implemented a ban on black cars back in 2015, although it only applied to imports. Now, president Gurbanguly Berdimukhamedov has reportedly banned all black cars from the country’s capital of Ashgabat.

What’s worse is that some car owners have already found their vehicles missing, as many black cars have been towed away to police impound lots.

In order to get their cars back, they must sign a document agreeing to repaint their vehicles in a lighter color – with white scoring you the most “points”, as it’s known to be the president’s favorite color.

Meanwhile, fees for car painting services have doubled, where according to Chronicles of Turkmenistan, they went from $500 to $1,000 in car service centers.

As for tinted windows, don’t even think about it: they have been banned since 2014.

Illegal Overtake Ends With A Head-On Crash In Australia 11

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Accidents, Australia, Dashcam, Offbeat News, video on 01 11th, 2018


As if ignoring the double white lines wasn’t bad enough, the driver of this white sedan inexplicably failed to return to their side of the road on time.

First, the good news. According to the description of the video, “everyone walked away” from this incident, which is the most you can hope for whenever a frontal collision occurs.

As for why this happened, aside from ignoring the double white lines, it’s possible that the driver of the sedan panicked when they saw the incoming car and tried to exit the road rather than fall back in line.

Another scenario would also include some panic, but with a dash of international tourism, where the person at fault might not have been accustomed to driving on the left side of the road, resulting in  hesitating at precisely the wrong time.

By that point, there wasn’t much the driver of the 4×4 could do, except for brake as hard as they could.
