Daytona NASCAR crash injures several fans

| No Comments

At least 33 Daytona NASCAR fans were injured when a car crash sent debris flying into the stands, the Wall Street Journal said.

Nineteen fans were taken to local hospitals and 14 were treated on site, the Wall Street Journal said. Two of the fans who arrived in critical condition are now in stable condition, the Wall Street Journal said.

The crash happened on the final lap near the finish line when multiple cars collided, sending Kyle Larson's car into the fence, the Chicago Tribune said.

Large chunks from the Larson's car went flying into the stands, the front end of the car was sheared off and the engine caught fire, the Wall Street Journal said.

The race, a prelude for the Daytona 500, took place at Daytona International Speedway.
