Starting line crash takes out camera man in horrific roll over

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/18/2021

Speaking from experience, the job of being a camera man at a racing event is not always a walk in the park as dangerous situations can lurk behind any and every corner.

While generally, if the poo hits the fan, it happens somewhere in the middle of the race, when drivers are in their most competitive form, this time, insanity breaks loose straight from start.

We tune in as the pack of cars gets rolling off of the starting line and before we know it, multiple drivers are in contact with one another and taking out the scaffolding that camera operators are working on.

Check out the video below that shows the entire incident unfolding as the car bounces over the wall and causes some destruction. We have no word on if any major injury occurred from the incident or not.
