UPDATE: ESPN reporting 17 people injured in crash

There was a horrific crash at the NASCAR Nationwide Series event being held at the Daytona International Speedway earlier today. At least 10 cars were involved in the incident which saw the vehicle of Kyle Larson being ripped apart by the fence which separates fans from the track.


The front and back of Larson's car were torn from the chassis but luckily the driver walked away unscathed.

Large chunks of Larson's car landed in the grandstands. The car itself had its entire front end sheared off, with the burning engine wedged through a gaping hole in the fence.
Volusia County spokesman Dave Byron said six people with serious injuries were taken by ambulance to Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach.
''Those six met the condition of trauma patients,'' Byron said, adding one person was taken to Memorial Health in Ormond Beach, and one person was taken to Halifax in Port Orange. Those two were ''not serious injuries.''
