The Indianapolis 500 featured one of the most terrifying crashes in years after the No. 77 car of Jay Howard clipped the wall and came down the track in front of Scott Dixon’s No. 9 car. Dixon, unable to slow down and avid Howard’s car, ran directly into the side of Howard and went airborne, flying into the top of the wall as his car came apart and burst into flames.
Dixon’s car flipped over and bounced around on the ground, but the safety cell managed to stay intact and Dixon was able to get out of the car under his own power and walk away from the carnage.
