Death-Defying Car Crash at Macau Grand Prix

Death-Defying Car Crash at Macau Grand Prix

According to the report, Floersch rear-ended the then-15th placer Jehan Daruvala on a flat-out part of the track, which put her out of control onto TOM'S Dallara-Toyota of Sho Tsuboi.

Floersch suffered a fractured spine in a frightening incident at the Macau Grand Prix, her airborne auto flying backwards over the edge of the circuit and into a large hoarding on the other side, close to where marshals and photographers were stationed. Doctors say the seven-hour surgery went ahead as planned and was completed without any issues.

The driver of the vehicle she clipped, Sho Tsuboi, also crashed and was taken to hospital as were two photographers and a race marshal. She's okay, although she did fracture her spine.

An update from Macau officials after the race confirmed the up-and-coming driver had suffered a spinal fracture in the crash, but her vital signs were stable. The collision caused Floersch to spin out, slamming into the wall and hitting the curb, which launched her into the air.

Floersch was conscious and transported to hospital, later tweeting that she would undergo surgery on Monday.

Florsch subsequently wrote on Twitter that she was "fine" and set for surgery the following morning. Thanks to everybody for the Supporting messages.

The president of the FIA, Jean Todt, said the crash will be investigated.

This is the 65th Macau Grand Prix, a street circuit known to be challenging because of its high-speed straights and tight corners.

As you can see in the video above, Floersch's Van Amersfoort Racing Dallara-Mercedes flew off of the race track after hitting another race vehicle.
