Gotta Watch: Craziness on the highway

In what may be one of the most expensive car wrecks in history, 14 high-end luxury cars were demolished in a highway pileup in Japan this weekend. The totaled supercars included eight Ferraris, three Mercedes-Benz cars and a Lamborghini. Today, we decided to take a look back at some of the craziest highway moments.

Multi-million dollar wreck –Β A group of luxury car enthusiasts were driving on Chugoku Expressway in southwestern Japan when witnesses say one driver skidded out of control and started a chain-reaction crash. Several drivers were hospitalized but no one was seriously injured.

The road to wealth –Β An armored truck near Detroit β€œaccidentally” dumped loads of cash onto I-75. Motorists didn’t get a chance to collect much of the flying loot as workers quickly began gathering the monetary precipitation.

Traveling circus – AΒ runaway zebraΒ made its way onto Atlanta's Downtown Connector before being captured by police and returned to the nearby circus.

Goo traps motorists – A leaking tanker truck spilled roofing asphalt over a nearly 40-mile stretch of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The sticky substance ended up damaging hundreds of cars and delaying holiday travel for many.

      Hey you, Phunnie boy above, can you post under your own name for a change instead of using mine? This is starting to make me look dumb and besides, there is nothing funny about a car accident!!!

    This kind of thing needs to be banned in all countries since it puts far too many lives in jeopardy. By the way, just ignore that stupid comment@12:40 pm posted under my name since some Tea Partying idiot is just trying to be funny here!!!

    I hope the young men in these crashes are prepared to make a positive contribution to society, keeping in mind that our fine law enforcement personnel were called to deal with these incidents instead of protecting our citizens.

    And to the moron trolling JIF, who is the same moron trolling me, if I ever meet you face-to-face, I've got a special place to put this grenade.

      Sorry Joey, I never posted the above. By the way, you might as well quit posting on this web page as these mindless Tea Partiers seem to have taken it over! Like you said, there's nothing funny about car accidents.

      BUSTED! You forgot you had changed your name between the 1:05 "JIF" and 1:47 "GP" posts, didn't you. So you are admitting that you are stealing screen names. How pathetic.

      Hey everybody, laugh at the pathetic troll!.
