Tulsa Man Drives Mercedes through Parking Wall Backwards! [with Video]

A couple of days ago, 67-year-old Ralph Hudson backed his Mercedes-Benz C-Class out of a parking garage in Tulsa, Oklahoma (let's hear it for the Golden Hurricane!).

Only problem is, he was 7 stories up. According to his statement, his foot was caught between the accelerator and brake pedals. Luckily, he wasn't hurt or killed.

The same can't be said for some of the cars below, which got beat up by falling bricks. Ah well, accidents will happen... Video after the break.

Formula DRIFT Singapore 2010: Live shots

Drift fan Darren sent us some sweet pics from Formula DRIFT Singapore 2010, which took place on April 24th and 25th.

According to Darren, "Forty-two drivers...from Asia-Pacific countries such as Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Thailand and New Zealand took part." Some even used smoke screens to mess with the competition's heads.

When perusing the gallery below, keep an eye out for this year's champion, the FX Formula Bridgestone Tandem Assassin Nissan 200SX driven by Tengku Djan Ley.

Other cars to notice include second-place Tan Tat Wei's AE-86 Toyota (Team Bridgestone Federation Drift) and third-place "Fanga Dan" Woolhouse representing Kiwi-land in his Holden Commodore.

Best of all is an '04 Subaru WRX tuned to the nines by Cosworth and "conceptualized by local Singaporean tuning firms Sparks Motorsports and LTM Performance".

Awesome pics, Darren. Thanks a lot, and keep it up.
