This crash, with Nicolas Diaz at the wheel of a Ford Fiesta rally car happened during the Rally de Catamarca in Argentina.
It highlights the incredible level of occupant protection of modern rally cars: both Diaz and co-driver Luis Allende walked away from the accident.
As for the cause of the crash, according to Motorpasión, the team says a brake failure at more than 60 mph around a mountainside curve caused the car to continue on straight, carwheeling with the throttle wide open into a small valley filled with spectators. Fortunately none of the onlookers were involved in the accident.
