I knew it must have been pretty rough when they didn't show the replay right away. I'm only hoping they showed it because maybe they think/have some sort of knowledge that he's going to be OK but so far it seems pretty bad. That hit when he was upside down loving crushed the driver's side.

I am getting some serious flashbacks to 2001. You kind of assume the cars are so safe now that a repeat of 2001 isnít possible but something about everyoneís mood at the end of that broadcast has me assuming the worst.

It was a different media environment obviously, and it happened in a different part of the track where there were no stands.

But someone correct me if Iím wrong, didnt they just take Dale Earnhardt to the hospital as a formality? Like he died on impact and it was VERY obvious to the first responders, right?

I think that was the case. First responders normally are not allowed to declare someone deceased, but they can use "Injuries not compatible with life", which I'm pretty sure they used for Dale.

One of my buddies is a firefighter in daytona, he worked with people who were on the scene and said he was gone when the safety crew got to the car.

They responded to the crash and immediately started removing/cutting the roof off. I think there is video of them starting to remove the roof while Schrader is still wandering around his car. Basically yanked Dale out of the car onto a stretcher into the ambulance. They didnít pronounce him until Halifax IIRC, but I think he was DOA.

I don't think you can officially pronounce someone dead without a medical professional present, right? Or can cops and firefighters also do it?

It may depend on local/state protocols, but it can also involve EMS calling into the ER and explaining that the body is here and the head is over there and a doctor technically calling it.

The whole "injuries incompatible with life" thing.
