The 24 Hours of Le Mans has been long underway and in just before the sixth hour of racing there was a BIG crash involving Anthony Davidson of the Denso Toyota Hybrid team -- from the prototype class -- and Piergiuseppe Perazzini who was piloting a Ferrari 458 -- from the GT class.
Thankfully both drivers made it out alive but, unfortunately, Davidson is laid up in a hospital with a broken back.
We wish Davidson a quick and speedy recovery.
Looking at the footage, it appears that Perazzini missed Davidson's prototype in the mirror and was looking for his apex going into the turn.
Anthony Davidson gets together with F458 Italia driven by Perazzini, goes airborne and crashes hard into the wall. Both drivers got out of the car on their own, Davidson is in hospital with a broken back.
