So you wanna be a race car driver eh!
Unbelievably for many, IndyCar driver Mike Conway escaped the carnage above with but a broken leg, as the Englishman crashed his car near the end of Sunday's Indianapolis 500.
Conway's car went airborne and smashed into the fence surrounding the race track, as can be seen in the video, his car skimmed over the top of Helio Castroneves, the race which featured Castroneves as the front runner and favourite eventually was won by Dario Franchitti, who took advantage of the resulting caution to hold his position and win the race.
Conway was airlifted to an Indianapolis hospital for evaluation but is not anticipated to suffer any further ailments from the crash.
