Nascar Daytona multi-car crash [00:52]
At least 28 fans have been injured in a multi-car crash during a Nascar race at Daytona in the US state of Florida. Large pieces of debris - including a tyre - flew into the spectator stands when one of the cars hit a fence separating the track from the seats. Race officials said 14 people had to be treated in hospital. The accident happened on the eve of the Dayton 500 - one of the most famous Nascar events. The officials later said the main race would go ahead. The President of Daytona International Speedway, Joie Chitwood, and Nascar's Steve O'Donnell addressed a press conference 'Freaky' The crash happened on the last lap of the second-tier race in Daytona as the cars approached the chequered flag. The driver in the leading car apparently tried to stop others overtaking him by moving sideways. One vehicle then hit another and flew into the fence. Pieces of debris were thrown into the stands and smoke from burning engines clouded the area. "It was freaky," fan Rick Harpster told the Associated Press news agency. "I saw a tyre fly straight over the fence into the stands. I knew it was going to be severe." Another eyewitness described people running and seeing a girl completely covered in engine oil. The race was earlier stopped for about 20 minutes following a separate accident in which one driver was injured.

NASCAR fan is hit and killed by lightning strike in the parking lot of Pocono Raceway (my response) [01:11]
(my response) Brian Zimmerman, of Moosic, Pa., died as he stood near his car in the parking lot of Pocono Raceway, according to the Monroe County coroner. A woman who answered the phone at Zimmerman's home declined comment. Nine other people were injured during Sunday's violent storm, though it wasn't immediately clear how many might have been struck by lightning. One who had been listed Sunday night in critical condition was upgraded to stable. The crowd of about 85000 was advised over public address systems and through social media to take cover Sunday afternoon when lightning and heavy rain hit the track near the end of the race. But some fans posted on the raceway's Facebook page that they never heard the weather-related announcements. NASCAR spokesman Dave Higdon said Monday that officials are reviewing how the track carried out its emergency procedures. He cautioned against rushing to judgment until all the facts are known. ''Anytime something like this happens, we make sure we look at it again and see if there's anything we should have done different,'' Higdon said. ''It's never a good day for us when someone passes and people are hurt.'' Pocono Raceway president and CEO Brandon Igdalsky expressed sorrow at a news conference Monday afternoon at the track, where a large US flag flew at half-staff. ''Fans are like family to us,'' Igdalsky said, noting that Zimmerman had been coming to races for several years with his friends. He added that he planned to contact ...
