F1 aspirant Colton Herta survived a major crash during Indy500 Carb Day Practice; aeroscreen became a key reason for him being unharmed.
After becoming one of the biggest IndyCar sensations, Colton Herta, who is eyeing a move to F1, just survived a major crash. The American race driver was participating in the Carb Day Practice session of Indy500 when his car collided with a wall and made him airborne.
He then flipped over the track, but the aeroscreen prevented his head from contacting the tarmac. Thus, playing a massive role in his survival.
Herta was then taken to a hospital and was later declared medically cleared. “I’m all good,” Herta said after leaving the infield medical centre. “It does look like it took a pretty big shunt there on the side.”
Colton Herta AIRBORNE!

Moreover, Herta even said that he was impressed with the car’s safety standards. He revealed that the impact was probably around 60-70 g force.
Fans on Twitter were relieved after seeing Colton Herta safe
The car crash was a horrific sight to see, and if the aeroscreen hadn’t been there, it could have been worse. The fans, in the end, couldn’t feel anything but grateful to see Herta walking away safe.
A VERY scary accident!!! Thank goodness he’s ok!
