Holy highway! This is absolutely TERRIFYING!
A 47-year-old Iowa mom was stuck driving over 100 mph for 35 minutes when her Kia Sorento lost all control and wouldn't stop accelerating.
Although there was no bomb threat in this real-life Speed scenario, we can only imagine how scary it is to be in a situation like this.
The video (above) shows just that by combining footage from the state police tailing the vehicle and the 911 call Lori Ubelstad made once she realized there was no stopping.
It's a miracle that nobody was hurt because she had to dodge lots of unsuspecting traffic before she received any assistance from the police, but we're oh so glad that everything turned out okay.
While there were no explosions or crashes involved, this is one high-speed car chase that is definitely worth watching!
The shooting final for men's double trap is finally over and one man stands alone as the gold medalist!
Double trap is a shotgun shooting sport where a clay disk is flung away from them at high speed and they attempt to shoot it in midair.
The winner's father said:
"He's a super shot and he's got the dedication - he eats, sleeps and dreams shooting."
Who is this mystery man??

We here at
SpacePerez FitPerez love us some science.
Sometimes, that science is so mind boggling and crazy we can't think about it too much or our brains might burst.
People INSIDE the cars aren't the only worry anymore for Volvo!
The clever car makers are launching their new airbag system that actually protects pedestrians if they're struck by the vehicle!
The new system is available in the 2013 V40 model, and if you look at the pic (above), you'll see that it's under the hood. It will inflate in a few hundredths of a second to cover around a third of the windshield.
It's only launched at speeds between 12 to 31 mph.
Unfortunately there are unavoidable situations where this would need to deploy, but we'd much rather people drive cautiously than to ever need to rely on this!
The system's seven sensors are located at the front of the vehicle. They can actually detect legs — and if they detect them, everything launches automatically!
