This was tweeted seconds after the crash happened. This was the first thing she did.

e: I’ll give benefit of the doubt that she was alone and had no one else to interact with.

She's probably just watching the race with the phone in her hand.

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.

I've heard that they'll never declare somebody dead while still inside track property for insurance purposes.

Say what you will about NASCAR, but it's the only sport that goes off the air leaving you to wonder if one of the participants is dead or not.

That's still one of the saddest parts of that accident. He was just heart broken when he ran up on that car.

It's really a different era in track safety. Even the Wheldon accident, it was responders first on scene.

I'm not a regular NASCAR fan (watched it some when I was a kid and I'll watch the occasional gif on Twitter), so I'm asking this sincerely: what are the signs here that this crash is worse than average? I feel like every NASCAR crash gif I've ever seen looks absolutely horrific to the same degree as this. Is it being airborne, or part of the trunk being ripped off signalling the intensity of the initial impact?

Honestly, I didnt see the second hit before I posted. I thought he just rolled.

That is loving horrific.

“When I wished death on the driver I didn’t know he might have actually died” is certainly a spicy hot take of a position

To me, it’s the way the driver’s side window is collapsed. No matter the intensity of a wreck I’ve seen, that normally stays structurally intact. It’s not meant to be hit on the top part, precisely where it was in this case.

the photo in particular isn't showing anything, really, it's the fact that he got hit directly in the driver's side door while upside down on second impact.

There's a two and half minute vid up now from the fence by Newman's car as they are trying to get to him and then the black screens come out. They did not seem frantic which seems worrying to me.

Nah all that body work is basically tissue paper it's that you can see where the absurdly strong welded tube rollcage that is the actual frame the rest of the car is bolted to has failed in several points, particularly the way all the structure in the drivers door region is collapsed 10-12 inches behind the plane of the wheels.
