Slow Motion Footage Of Sophia Floersch's Crash Is Frightening

Slow motion footage of the Macau Grand Prix crash has emerged online and it's even more horrifying.

17-year old Sophia Floersch's vehicle spiralled out of control when on a tight bend and she collided with the TOM'S Dallara-Toyota, which was being driven by Japanese driver Sho Tsuboi.

Tsuboi hit the kerb and the impact led to Floersch's car flying over the barrier and into the photographers section in a truly horrifying scene.

Floersch, who was driving at 270 km/h (172mph), had to go to hospital for surgery but things could have been much worse.

She took to Twitter to provide everyone on her condition and thank everyone for their support.

A total of five people were injured in the crash. Tsuboi, the driver Floersch hit, is suffering from back pain as a result of the crash, with two photographers and a marshal also in hospital with different injuries.

According to Autosport, citing a medical report from those who organise the race, photographers Chan Weng Wang and Minami Hiroyuki were diagnosed with a liver laceration and a concussion respectively, while Chan Cha is dealing with "fractured facial bone and lacerations".

We hope for a speed recovery for all of those injured but it really is a miracle that there no immediate casualties after a collision that looked like something out of a movie scene.
