This happened at the Indy 500 Sunday:
Both cars are destroyed. There was a time when a crash like this would have killed both of these drivers. Just take a look at YouTube videos of past Indy car crashes.
Instead, the most seriously hurt person was a photographer behind the wall. Which means spectators are in more danger than drivers are.
Even if you’re not a car racing fan, though, you have to appreciate the safety features being built into these machines, because some variation of them will eventually be put in your family sedan. And when you hit a wall at a much lower speed, you won’t die, either.
