    “Chrisley Knows Best” star Savannah Chrisley survived a terrifying car accident on Monday. “I got in a car accident early Monday morning because my floor mat had gotten stuck behind my pedals so I looked down for a brief second to try and get it out of the way and then I realized that I was headed straight towards the guardrails,” she wrote. “I tried to over correct but it didn’t help. As soon as I hit the guardrail my airbags came out,” she explained on Instagram. Chrisley, 19, said that a number of cars passed by before anyone stopped...

  • Saudi Woman Killed Defying Driving Ban: Report

    05/09/2014 12:40:16 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 24 replies
    A Saudi woman was killed in a car crash in the capital Thursday as she defied the kingdom’s long-standing ban on female driving, local media reported. The woman, in her 20s, lost control of her vehicle and crashed into the wall of a youth club in Riyadh, according to the website of the local Al-Jazeera daily. The car caught fire and she died, it said. Ultra-conservative Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world where women are not allowed to drive. However, they usually get behind the wheel in desert regions away from the capital. Thursday’s deadly accident was...

    For decades, pioneer aviator Amelia Earhart was said to have “disappeared” over the Pacific on her quest to circle the globe along a 29,000-mile equatorial route. Now, new information gives a clearer picture of what happened 75 years ago to Ms. Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan, where they came down and how they likely survived – for a while, at least – as castaways on a remote island, catching rainwater and eating fish, shellfish, and turtles to survive.

    Danica Patrick wasn't pleased with Sam Hornish Jr. in Saturday's Nationwide Series race at Talladega and made it known by wrecking him after the checkered flag. In light of what had just happened moments earlier with Eric McClure having to be airlifted to the hospital after a multi-car wreck, her behavior is all the more astonishing. However, neither driver was called to the NASCAR hauler after the incident. Hornish finished 12th and Patrick 13th in a race won by Joey Logano. Sam Hornish Jr.: "... After the race was over, we got right-reared by the 7 car (Danica Patrick). I...

    FOR a 16-year-old sailor planning a solo voyage around the world, Jessica Watson's first night at sea delivered a stern warning of the dangers she faces. In the dead of night, just hours after Jessica set sail from Queensland's Sunshine Coast on a 10-day trial voyage to Sydney, her 10.4m sloop Ella's Pink Lady collided with a big cargo ship. But despite the collision, which left her yacht badly damaged, an uninjured Jessica says she will not be deterred from becoming the youngest person to sail solo, non-stop and independently around the world. ...

    Their Toyota Indy 400 ended in a crash Sunday, but the action between Danica Patrick and Jaques Lazier didn't end on the track. Afterward, fingers were pointing and poking ... and maybe even punching. And before this one's over, IndyCar promises to have a hand in it. Patrick, who spent most of the day hovering near the back of the top 10, saw her rookie-of-the-year season end in a jarring crash with Lazier that brought out the fourth and final caution flag just 16 laps from the end of the 200-lap event. "The first person I saw after the accident...

    INDIANAPOLIS -- Everywhere Danica Patrick goes at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the crowds follow. There's the camera crew documenting every move of her first month at the 2½-mile track, and a curious media corps -- from ESPN to People magazine -- that continually peppers her with questions. When she finally gets a break from that, the autograph seekers are waiting. It can be trying even for a veteran. But Patrick, a rookie, sees it as a chance to prove herself.
