Checking Out the Crash Tests

See our car crash stuff on the site recently? It was a blog post from our Phil LeBeau. Great read and great video. A lot of you dove into it ... the post and the videos were one of our most popular items yesterday.

Now were you going for the safety info or just the neat footage? My guess is, like many car races, most of you were just going to see the best crash. I think that because this video ....

Smart Fortwo vs. Mercedes C class
The IIHS collision caused the Smart Fortwo to become airborne and turn around 450 degrees.

... got more views, despite being lower down in the story below the more widely-owned Toyota Camry crash. The SmartCar vs. Mercedes crash is the more dramatic one.

What was best about Phil's post? You can run all three videos simultaneously for a neat, and kind of terrifying, side-by-side-by-side experience.
