NASCAR Driver Austin Dillon Goes Airborne In Horrific Crash And Walks Away

Seconds after the finish of the Coke Zero 400 at the Daytona International Speedway Sunday night, a crash involving several drivers sent driver Austin Dillon airborne and into the catchfence at 180 mph. Incredibly, Dillon walked away from the wreck with only a bruised tailbone and forearm. Track president Joie Chitwood III said, debris from the wreck injured 13 fans, eight declined treatment, four were treated on site, and one was taken to the hospital in stable condition.
