Because we're always interested in wreck video where no one dies

Certain cars can go fast. Certain cars, like the twin-turbo Lamborghini Gallardo, can go very, very fast. And when said cars don't stop properly, very bad things can happen. Witness the wreck below, which occurred on Saturday at the Texas Mile, a former runway and now an amateur race testing facility:

The driver of the Underground Racing ride was fine, if certainly a wee bit shaken and more in touch with his mortality. The car apparently hit 235 mph, and when the chute deployed, the combination of speed and crosswinds, which you can hear in the video, sent the car pinwheeling.

Cars were not meant to go fast. When will we learn?
