One-Time Mythbuster Jessi Combs Dies In Jet Car Accident



Jessi Combs, a television host and professional racer, died on Tuesday in Oregon while trying to break the women’s land-speed world record.

She had been driving the North American Eagle, a 56-foot-long jetlike car capable of generating over 45,500 horsepower. The crash occurred on a dry lake bed.

Combs filled-in for Kari Bryon during her maternity leave from the popular Discovery Channel show Mythbuster. She also hosted “Xtreme 4x4,” a show about off-roading, and “Overhaulin’,” a show about revamping cars.
