When this notch-back Mustang loses control it slams nose first into the cement wall, catapulting the hood right at a photographer standing on the other side. Luckily for him, he ducks out of the way a split second before the Fox Body’s hood came flying at his head. Milan Dragway located in Milan, Michigan is home to many drag racing and other events April through November with this crash occurring on May 4th during the “Detroit vs. Chicago, Motor City Mayhem” Outlaw Street event.
The Mustang Source brought this scary crash to our attention–a small block Fox Body hits a shot of nitrous before losing control and slamming into the cement wall, knocking out the driver. Luckily, the camera man was not hurt and the driver was taken to the hospital for observation over what appeared not to be serious injuries. It goes without saying, this could have been much worse given the speed of the crash and flying piece of death metal headed straight for the defenseless photographer. Now we can just be sad about the busted Fox that needs a new hood, among other things.
We’ve all seen close calls at the track before, but I think it’s safe to say nothing beats a wheel stand wipe out.
