Video: Terrifying pit lane crash mars Pocono IndyCar race
Helio Castroneves narrowly escaped a serious injury during the Pocono IndyCar race after three cars tangled in pit lane.
Alexander Rossi was released from his pit stall at the same time Charlie Kimball was rolling past and the two came together. The initial crash knocked Rossi into the air and he landed on Castroneves, leaving marks on the right sidepod of his car just inches from his head. Fortunately, none of the three were injured in the incident.
"I just saw a car on top of me all of a sudden," said Castroneves. "It was scary, it hit a little bit of my hand. [But] inside the car I was more protected than what it looked like." Kimball returned to the race, while Castronves and Rossi's cars were unable to continue.
