17-year-old girl suffers spinal fracture in horrifying racing crash


German teenage Formula 3 racer Sophia Floersch suffered a spinal fracture after a harrowing airborne crash at the Macau Grand Prix near Hong Kong on Sunday.

The injury was released in a report by her team, but no further details were available. 

 Video footage appears to show Floersch ​​​​​​clip a Japanese driver’s car and fly off the track on lap four. Her car then flew through the catch fence and hit a structure outside the track.

Floersch released her own statement on Twitter.

FIA, motor sport’s governing body, release a statement saying “two members of the media and one marshal were also transferred to a local hospital in a conscious state for further evaluation.”
