10. Tom Brady Causes Every Boston Reporter to Drop What They’re Doing
The week heading into the 2010 NFL season, Brady was involved in an accident where a driver ran a red light and hit his Audi sedan. Every reporter in New England pretty much dropped whatever news story they were working on to cover this event.
9. Shia Lebouf’s F150
The star of Indiana Jones and Transformers somehow rolled his truck at an intersection, reportedly after having a few drinks. Hey Lebouf, why don’t you start doing all your own stunts? That’s what Tom Cruise does.
8. George Michael’s Fashionable Rear-Ender
This is what happens when you drive 100 mph, then try to avoid rear-ending someone in your Range Rover. It seems like Michael has a lot of problems with recklessness and motor vehicles — it’s amazing he’s still allowed to drive. And sing. (Sorry, it had to be said.)
7. Michael Phelps Crashes an SUV
Phelps was involved in an accident with a Cadillac SUV in Baltimore, causing the other driver to go to the hospital for minor injuries. After winning pretty much ever medal ever invented for swimming, there’s one award he had to give up: “World’s Safest Driver.”
6. Usain Bolt Wrecks BMW M3
The fastest runner in the world, Bolt can accelerate himself to a consistent 27 mph, making him the world record holder in the 100-meter dash. The only problem is that he apparently loses control when surfaces are less than optimal.
5. Comedian Eddie Griffin Wrecks Ferrari
While driving his million-dollar Ferrari to a charity event, Griffin crashed the car’s delicate body into a wall. Judging by the photos, this must have been a rental, because he doesn’t seem too worked up about the crash.
4. Lindsay Lohan Tries to Escape Paparazzi… and Fails
Lindsay Lohan hates the paparazzi so much that she’s got to try to escape them in a fast, expensive car. Unfortunately, life isn’t like the movies, and you can’t always get away. Case in point: a wrecked Mercedes Benz.
3. Paris Hilton’s Boyfriend Hits Commercial Truck with Bentley
It’s one thing to rear-end a large truck. But when you do it in a really expensive car, in front of the paparazzi, because you’re Paris Hilton’s boyfriend, and then get away with it–even though you’re drunk–even after getting pulled over by the police, it’s another thing. Whew!
2. Billy Joel Crashes Into House
The Piano Man was on his way to get a pizza in the Hamptons, hit a wet slick on the road, then crashed into a house. Although Joel has been known to be a terrible driver, you’ve got to admit that houses are big and hard to miss.
1. Tiger Woods Crashes After Having Too Many “Sides”
Normally, consuming side dishes can make a person full, but Tiger’s side dishes resulted in a vicious (supposed) attack by his now ex-wife, and a wrecked car.
