A huge, multi-car crash on the final lap of Saturday’s Nationwide Series race at Daytona International Speedway injured 28 fans, some seriously.
At least one NASCAR fan suffered life-threatening injuries.
An amazing raw video of the crash quickly went viral:NASCAR Crash at Daytona
As CNN reports, shredded debris flew into the racetrack barrier and beyond, with some reaching 20 feet up to the second level of the track’s stands.
Tires and parts flew into the crowd after the crash; 14 of those injured were treated on site and 14 others were transferred off-site to seek medicalMore >
Simply put, Casablanca is the greatest movie in cinematic history.
The rankings finally concluded today with a final three of Vertigo, Taxi Driver and the Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman classic that “continues to compel every new generation that comes along,” according to the site. Why?
“Because it is equal parts timeless romance and war drama, whose themes could not be more universal, regardless of the era.”
That’s lofty praise. Do you agree with the ranking? IsMore >
As practical jokes go, the Invisible Driver Drive-Thru Prank – as created and filmed by compulsive prankster and magician Rahat – ranks in the upper tier.
For this trick, members of the audience, Rahat builds a seat cover that looks just like the seat in his Nissan, then puts it over himself while he’s driving.
The result? What appears to be a car that drives itself … and has a real craving for fast food. Delish. Watch Rahat’s hilarious demonstration below:Drive Thru Invisible Driver Prank

It’s been known for days, but now it’s official: Hector “Macho” Camacho was taken off life support this morning and passed away from injuries he suffered in a shooting earlier this week.
He was 50 years old.
The multiple-time world champion had not fought since 2010 and had also been involved in a number of run-ins with the law over recent years, from burglary charges to domestic abuse allegations.
On Tuesday morning, he and a long-time friend were driving along a road in Bayoman, Puerto Rico when another vehicle pulled up alongside them.
Those in the other car fired shotsMore >
Hector Camacho, a former Lightweight and Welterweight boxing champion, will pass away today from injuries suffered in a shooting on Tuesday. His family has announced it is taking the 50-year old off life support.
The Puerto Rican native, who compiled a lifetime record of 79-6-3, was the passenger in a car when another vehicle pulled up aside him and a friend, firing shots that killed the driver in Camacho’s car and fatally wounding the athlete.
He was hit in the neck and face and suffered a cardiac arrest soon after the incident, which many believe was drug-related after bags ofMore >

James Holmes has been identified as the suspect who opened fire inside a Colorado movie theater early this morning, injuring over 50 attendees and killing at least 12 people on hand to watch a screening of The Dark Knight Rises.
The 24-year old is in police custody.
Sources say Holmes is a former University of Colorado School of Medicine student who dropped out last month. He does not have a criminal record, nor does he appear to possess ties to any terrorist organization.
Authorities raided Holmes’ Denver-area apartment today andMore >
Flavor Flav needs to cough up $111,186 in child support payments to the mother of three of his seven kids or face jail time, news sources say.
“It was declared a willful violation,” an official said of his failure to pay child support … which can’t be good. He faces up to 180 days behind bars.
The rapper didn’t show up for a hearing last week, so an Albany, N.Y. magistrate recommended his driver’s license and passport be revoked.
While Flav, 53, is required to pony up $837.72 a week to baby-mama Angie Parker for child support … he clearly hasn’t done so in some time.
This isn’t the firstMore >
Welcome to THG’s Week in Review! Below, our staffers look back at the stories, stars and scandals that made the last seven days some of the craziest ALL MONTH.
Now, a rundown of the week that was at The Hollywood Gossip:
- After a nail-biting, emotional and close American Idol finale Tuesday night …
- … Phillip Phillips prevailed, making him the fifth straight WGWG to win.
- Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan
Russell Brand absolutely shut it down during his stand-up show in Atlantic City, N.J., just annihilating a heckler who had been taunting him about Katy Perry.
The heckler had been yelling Perry-related comments at the Borgata on Saturday, most of which went ignored by Russell, who split with Katy last winter.
But it was his yelling “God save the queen!” during a bit about the British royal family that sent the zany comic into full-scale verbal attack mode:
“What, mate?” Russell tentatively began. “I want to see what this person looks like, turn theMore >
Things are about to get serious on Dancing With the Stars. With the field culled down from 12 to six, the pressure is mounting beginning tonight.
After Jaleel White’s ouster last Tuesday, it became clear once again that no one is safe, especially with the performances improving every time out.
Roshon Fegan and Melissa Gilbert are clearly the underdogs going forward. Can either make a surprise run to the top three and the DWTS finals?
If not, it’s going to be a four-person battle for three spots, with Donald Driver, William Levy, Katherine Jenkins and Maria Menounos eying the MirrorMore >
Looks like there may be a few bugs in the newest version of the iOS.
People have complained that Siri rarely does what you actually want and that she can have a difficult time with nuances of different languages.
We had no idea Siri was a closet racist, however, until just now.
In a parody from Funny or Die, the virtual iPhone assistant offers advice to an African-American gentleman based solely on racial stereotypes.
This is the second funniest spoof on the iPhone after last winter’s nuclear marital Siri argument. When in doubt … call your parole officer.

Amanda Bynes was involved in another hit and run in Hollywood this weekend, but at least she apparently hit some random guy and not a cop.
A man claims he was sideswiped by a Range Rover trying to pass him on the right in L.A., and when the SUV didn’t stop, he called the police.
He also began to follow the SUV himself, and when he finally caught up to the Range Rover, sources say the driver was none other than Bynes.
The star told police she had no idea she had struck another vehicle, which is plausible, as police say damage to her car was quite minimal.

If you thought the potholes on your road were bad, maybe think twice before calling city hall. Chances are you have nothing on this Russian cabbie.
In the local news segment below, the maligned taxi driver laments that his vehicle is stuck in what is obviously a rather large gouge in the road.
One obscured, apparently, by water caused by a recent storm, poor drainage, or both. Don’t you hate when that happens and you can’t see how deep it is?
Speaking of which, watch what happens when he tries to get it out. Just wait.

Sometimes life imitates art, or something like that.
Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey channeled his inner Dr. McDreamy this week when he helped rescue a teenager who careened off the road and overturned his car completely near the actor’s property in Malibu, Calif.
The car had rolled repeatedly and was totaled.
Dempsey reportedly ran toward the car with crowbar in hand so he could pry the driver out of the wrecked Mustang, and was successful.
A neighbor called 911 and the police came, with paramedics treating the crash victim for a concussion, and stunningly nothing worse.
Patrick, ofMore >
