A car driven by racer Jeremy Foley skids off the track around a curve on Pikes Peak in Colorado before flipping more than a dozen times.
From the New York Daily News:
A racecar driver and his co-driver are lucky to be alive after their car plunged off a cliff and flipped more than a dozen times down the side of a mountain during a race in Colorado Sunday.
The hair-raising crash came during the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, a treacherous race to the summit of Pikes Peak, a 14,000-foot mountain in the Rockies near Colorado Springs.

Driver Jeremy Foley and his co-driver, Yuri Kouznetsov, where tearing into a turn at mile 16 when their Mitsubishi Evolution 8 spun out of control and careened off the side of the mountain.
YouTube video shot at the scene caught the crowd screaming in horror as the 500-horsepower auto explodes in a shower of body panels and parts while somersaulting down the rocky peak.
