Horrific Wreck

Injures 28 at Daytona

2/23/2013 2:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF



0223_nascar_crashA multicar crash on the final lap of the Nationwide Series race Saturday at Daytona International Speedway injured 28 fans, including one who suffered life-threatening head trauma.

At least one tire flew into the crowd at Daytona International Speedway ... where 14 of the injured were treated on site and the other 14 were transferred off-site.

A representative from nearby Halifax Medical Center told ESPN that one adult underwent surgery for life-threatening head trauma, and a 14-year-old is in critical, but not life-threatening condition.

Kyle Larson, the driver of the car that was torn to pieces, was not injured.

The Daytona 500, the first and biggest event of the racing season, takes place at the same track tomorrow.

I assume there is a "that" missing after the word "car"?

Never cared for NASCAR. Not surprised that this happened, people are way too close to the action. Just like this video of a plane crash at the reno air races.

My first thought was, how could they let people spectate so closely? I think NASCAR better do something about that.

"Oh no, what will mensa do with so many of their members injured?" --- That comment and it's likes from the nolifers that stay here 24/7 waiting for a Lohan post to hate on. Educate yourself, fat chicks and gay dudes.

The driver of the car was torn to pieces, but not injured. How miraculous.

never seen one like it, the truck wreck a few years ago was bad, but nothing big went into the stands. IRL had one years ago when a tire was hit by a car and went in the stands and killed a fan. Really sorry for anyone injured and hope they pull through OK.
