Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto character from the Fast And Furious franchise has wrecked almost twice as many vehicles onscreen as Jason Bourne, played by Matt Damon. According to research carried out by Scrap Car Comparison, Diesel wrecked no fewer than 30 cars in 2011's Fast Five alone. In total, the American actor is responsible for wrecking 61 vehicles onscreen – that's one more than Bruce Willis. The legendary Die Hard star takes second place in the ranking of Hollywood's most dangerous drivers, ahead of Arnold Schwarzenegger, who counts some 52 vehicles destroyed onscreen.

The study looked at the number of cars written off onscreen by each actor, taking into account vehicles crashed or wrecked with stars at the wheel, or vehicles ruined with the use of firearms or other means. "Minor damage such as wing mirrors being broken or small dents were not counted in the research," the study explains. Diesel was at the wheel of 57 of his 61 vehicles wrecked, compared to 35 of the 60 wrecked by Willis. The Terminator star was driving 30 of the 52 vehicles he destroyed.

Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson come in joint 10th place. Both stars wrecked 18 vehicles onscreen, but while The Rock was driving 12 of those, the Fast And Furious: Hobbs and Shaw star was at the wheel of six.

While no female movie star makes the top 10, the study does state that Angelina Jolie wasn't too far behind, trashing a total of 10 vehicles onscreen. – AFP Relaxnews
