Well, not a lot of people are going to agree with me, or maybe they will. I'm not trying to tell you what to think but maybe try and help change your perspective on things, or on the situation of the episode.
Criss Angel's car wreck vanish, i have seen the episode lots, as well as everyone else. Next time you watch the episode, read the title of the episode clearly (not trying to say you must be blind or anything). But here is something to think about.
Criss is very good at what he does with the art of magic and illusion, and knows how to make people feel the way they do. He has studied magic for the longest time, more so than some, but maybe not a lot than some living longer than him. He knows how to freak people out. He had 13 seconds to escape from the handcuffs and get out of the car before it went off the cliff. Now he obviously wasn't in the car when the big explosion went off with fire everywhere. He obviously had a back-up plan that no one else knew about, or even the production crew. Criss once said in previous episodes, "if what i'm doing doesn't work, or it doesn't go as planned - there is always the element of surprise!" He had to have vanished before the car exploded, or he would have still been stuck and the stunt could have gone a lot worse.
But i am not saying that thats what happened, i'm just trying to help you come up with a different theory, if you will. Then again, i don't know myself but thats kind of the conclusion that i've come up with. Cuz that episode did air a long while after (before A&E premiered a new season and they were showing marathons of Mindfreak), and people were still coming on to message boards asking if he made it through the demonstration, and if he was ok.
