The moment Dario Franchitti lost control of his race car and slammed into the fence at yesterday's IndyCar race in Houston has been captured from a shocking first-person perspective on a spectator's cameraphone.
The crash, which saw Franchitti's car lifted into the air and slam into the fence at over 100mph after it was nudged by another vehicle, injured 13 spectators.
Scottish-born Franchitti was himself airlifted to hospital, where he remains "awake and alert", despite suffering a fractured spine and broken ankle.
"He's talking," said team owner Chip Ganassi, who arrived at the crash scene on a scooter. "His ankle is a little sore, his back is a little sore. He is going to be OK."
The race was eventually won by Australian driver Will Power.
