With 78 laps to go in the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, 49-year-old Buddy Lazier crashed. He hit the wall in Turn 2.
He was already going backwards when he made contact with the wall. According to the ABC announcers, it was one of two things that caused Lazier to hit the wall the way that he did.
It was either an oversteer by the driver, or something was wrong with the car. At this time, we do not know what caused Lazier to crash.
Lazier, who is a former winner of this prestigious event, was the oldest driver in the field. Lazier, the 1996 Indianapolis 500 winner, will finish his day in the 29th position. He joins Conor Daly, Jack Harvey, Scott Dixon and Jay Howard, who left this prestigious race due to accidents.
Despite the accidents, Dixon had the worst accident of the day, as he went up into the air and hit the wall after Howard came down from hitting the wall.
