Horrific crash during 2014 Rolex 24 at Daytona (Video)

The 24 Hours of Daytona, often referred to as Rolex 24 at Daytona is a twenty-four hour endurance race that pits multiple drivers on teams against each other in one of the most popular racing events of the season.

Unfortunately, the ever-popular race was brought to a halt this afternoon as a devastating crash took place with a stalled car.

Television cameras picked up the number 62 Ferrari struggling, who had just finished coming around the International Horseshoe. Blinded, the the number 99 car driven by Memo Gidley slammed into the Ferrari driven by Matteo Malucelli and sent it airborne in one of the scariest crashes you’ll ever see.

It’s being reported that Malucellii was having electric problems and was unable to get his car into drive.

Both men were taken from the vehicles and immediately rushed to local hospitals. There are no updates on their conditions.

There are also unconfirmed reports (remember, unconfirmed) suggesting that one of the drivers feet actually went through the car floorboard and were pinned under the pedals.

Our best wishes to both drivers.
