    Valerie Thompson was going for the motorcycle land speed record of 376 mph when it all went wrong. Racing across the salt flats of Australia's Lake Gairdner at the World Speed Trials, on March 19, her streamlined two-wheeler tipped over at 343 mph.

    Video of the accident show the fish-shaped bike flipping end over end, rolling over and sliding for more than a mile before finally coming to a rest on its side. Amazingly, the carbon fiber body of the vehicle stayed largely intact, and Thompson suffered only minor bumps and cuts!

    Thompson said that it was the first time she ever crashed the bike, with which she set the women’s motorcycle land speed record of 328 mph earlier in the week.
