In what can only be described as one of the most horrific motorsport crashes in recent memory, Dario Franchitti and 13 spectators were left injured during the Houston Grand Prix.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LkSrE7mONw#t=72
Heading into a slight right-hander, Franchitti’s car hit the rear of a competitor and rocketed towards the fence. The crash was at such high-speed that the front-end of Franchitti’s IndyCar was completely destroyed. Much of the debris then flew into the crowd thus injuring 13 spectators.
The crash left Franchitti with two broken vertebrae, a fractured ankle while also leaving him with a concussion.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaG9Bp3-fXU
