Leah Pruett was able to walk away from a crazy looking crash when the front end of her car collapsed and sent her into the air. The dragster is a stump, but the capsule stayed intact and she was able to give an interview moments later.

Unapproved Safety Failures that OSHA Wouldn't Like

If you've ever worked in any kind of physical job, not matter how small, you've probably been told to do some spectacularly unsafe garbage. Awkward ladder use, unorthodox building materials, and improper machinery use are the tip of the iceberg for safety fails that would make OSHA faint.

Unsafe Maneuvers that would Have OSHA Screaming

A whole lot of people brag about the unsafe crap they do and hold it as a point of pride. Sometimes it seems like the whole world is in a contest to see how precarious they get get their ladders and how spectacularly they can fail at safety. If you've ever had a boss that's made you do OSHA nightmare crap like this, welcome to the stupid club, and I guess congrats on being here to read this sentence.

29 Safety Failures That Would Give OSHA Nightmares

Ever had a boss that wanted to do something you knew was stupid, like standing on a ladder supported by a second ladder, supported by something on wheels? And you're like "I think this is unsafe" and he's all "this is how we've done it for years and nothing bad has happened, I mean except that one time." Man, screw that noise.

Dude, seriously? Aren't you worried about your dog or even the plethora of flammable chemicals you're throwing sparks at? There's a fine line between kludging and wanton disregard for safety, this is definitely the latter.
