Woof!!!

Did you see this killer crash at the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race over the weekend?

Time to catch you up and point you to the breathtaking YouTube footage, Viper fans.

British racer Anthony Davidson tried to maneuver his Toyota TS030 LMP1 past rival driver Piergiuseppe Perrazini’s Ferrari 458 Italia just before the race’s five-hour mark.

Davidson’s car hit the Ferrari, and the stunning video footage shows his Toyota flipping through the air and smashing into a tire barrier.

Perrazini’s Ferrari also quickly crashes several feet away.

It’s like a low-tech “Minority Report.”

Lathrop, Calif., lovebirds Steve and Amanda Nelson are taking to YouTube after their tricked-out Honda Accord got boosted right in front of their house.

The couple apparently uses their dog Pismo as their super-cheap car alarm option (whoops! That might be their first mistake right there, maybe try a REAL alarm.) The normally peaceful pooch first confronted the thieves when they slunk up alongside the house:

“She doesn’t bark, so I elbowed him a little bit and I said, ‘Babe,’ and he said, ‘I’m going, I’m going,’” Amanda told FOX40 in Sacramento.

Steve ran around to the front of the house, just in time to see the car rolling on away.

Now on the hunt, the couple has slapped the footage on YouTube, imploring the help of anyone who sees either the thieves or their car — along with a message to the ne’er-do-wells:

“Try working for what you want in life and you can have the nice things we have without stealing,” Amanda told FOX40.
