Allan McNish Was Lucky to Walk Away Alive After a Crash at Le Mans 2011
Scotsman Allan McNish was driving a Audi, and clipped Anthony Beltoise's car before spinning out and slamming into the wall of tires at an incredibly high speed.
The car then landed upside down and McNish had to be pulled free, and although he was in pain he was able to walk away from the wreckage and he is going to make a full recovery.
A spokesman for McNish said he is fine but just really upset he had to pull out the rest of the race.
'I have absolutely no idea what happened,' said Beltoise. 'I was on my second lap after a pit stop. I didn't even see the Audi coming up behind me.
'The impact was very heavy. I'm disappointed for Audi, and I hope Allan is well. I'm doing fine, but I was just very surprised by the accident.'
