Warning: Some may find this video upsetting.
A horrifying incident took place yesterday at the VLN1 endurance race held at the iconic Nurburgring Race Track. British driver Jann Mardenborough was involved in an accident that resulted in the death of one spectator and the injury of two others.
The moment that Mardenborough's Nissan flew over barriers into an unsuspecting crowd was caught on tape. In the video we see Mardenborough's vehicle coming around a corner with the front end lifted from the ground. The car seems to ride on its back wheels for a moment before flying over a spectator barrier. The vehicle can be seen landing on its back. The video cuts away for a moment and then we see driver Mardenborough able to exit the vehicle on his own.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, one member of the crowd was killed in the accident while two others were injured. Medical staff with the circuit medical center were able to treat the injured spectators almost immediately; however, they were unable to save one. After the accident, the race was cancelled and VLN 1 made a public statement offering their condolences to the family of the spectator who was killed. VLN says they are working with Nissan and Mardenborough to determine what caused the deadly crash.
ABC reports that Mardenborough, seemed to be okay after the crash. He was seen walking and was treated at the circuit medical center. After being checked out by staff on the scene, Mardenborough was sent to the local hospital for a routine health check. However, Mardenborough looked visible shaken in the video.
