Evel Knievel's 25 Most Dangerous Jumps

16. 16 Cars

Date: September 16, 1971
Location: Great Barrington Fair in Great Barrington, MA
Successful Jump: No
Injuries Sustained: Sprained wrist

Originally, Knievel planned on attempting a much longer jump than this. But, because of rain, he had to shorten it. He probably should have just cancelled it altogether, though, because he actually took a huge spill, after clearing the jump and falling on wet grass. But, then again, if he had cancelled jumps due to dangerous conditions, he just wouldn't be Evel Knievel, now would he?
