Willys Drag Race Goes Terribly Wrong [Video]
Such an accident occurred at Ohio’s Dragway 42 last week, where Gordon Crowe and Ed Kasicki put their Willys gassers up for a 1/8 mile race. Unfortunately, something went terribly wrong for Crowe, who lost control of his vehicle while passing the finish line.
Even though Crowe managed to deploy the parachute, the altered Willys Coupe started rolling over violently after sliding at 111 mph (178 km/h). Fortunately enough, and despite heavy damage sustained by his vehicle, Gordon Crowe survived the crash with only a broken arm. He was reportedly conscious when the medics arrived and we can only hope for a fast recovery and comeback. With better luck next time.
