The most violent looking wrecks are usually not most lethal. The ones that
seem slow and come to an abrupt stop are the ones that cause the most
damage. These cars are made to colapse and fall apart to absorb some of the
impact if that doesnt happen then the impact was severe.

or not

i was thinking small. my video is in the video responses

Автор Badger at Toad Hall ( назад)
calling a crash that killed a man "boring" thats a bit.......

Автор Badger at Toad Hall ( назад)
boring? a man died in this crash.

Автор David Brayton ( назад)
Oh and BTW some are correct here that the HANS would have saved Scottie

Автор David Brayton ( назад)
Firestone was exonerated I believe. But.....

Автор Mitch Robinson ( назад)
I never met him but heard great things about him. Very sad to lose someone
like him. But seeing Ed Carpenter's pole day crash this year is a real
testament to how SAFER, HANS, Dallara monocoques, Firestone tires, helmets,
etc have improved safety incredibly. Those two wrecks were nearly identical

If u slow mo this crash..braytons rear tires seem to re grip the track and
it whips the car into the wall.

Автор RRaquello ( назад)
I think likely a combination of the SAFER barrier & HANS device could have
saved Brayton's life, but those things weren't around then. This was a
violent crash, but the violence was quick, no flying or tumbling. Just
going straight into a wall at top speed. Similar to the crashes that killed
Senna & Dale Earnhardt. Just listen to the sound of it, recorded from a
pretty far distance, and you know how hard he hit.

Автор RRaquello ( назад)
One thing to remember for those who say this didn't look so violent. This
was a year before they put new rules in Indy Car to slow down the cars. I
believe Luyendyk was fastest qualifier (though not pole winner) at 237+
MPH. They haven't approached those speeds in 15+ years since. Brayton was
going close to qualifying speeds here, over 230 MPH. Even Dan Wheldon's
crash last year, bad as it was, wasn't close to being as fast as this. It
was close to a dead stop from over 230 MPH.

broken neck.

How he died from that crash? It dosn't look many violent...

Автор tsolm13 Original ( назад)
From what I've been told, Brayton got the pole for the race that year. He
later went out for this practice run and was going to do a short run and
decided not to put all of his safety gear on such as his neck brace. He,
along with everyone else never expected a tire failure going into a corner.
Wearing all his proper safety gear would have most likely saved his life.

Yes it works but now the problem in this kind of race, you can die just
because the human body can't support the violence of some crashes.. An
exploded spleen or other internal injuries etc.. In 2012, We are in stage
where the safety can do nothing more.. Car, bike or whatever are more and
more fast and safe but the human body doesn't change... Now, it's just a
matter of luck... :-/ Being at the right place in the right time.. Ps:
Sorry for my english.. lol

I am not a racer but i can assure you that the HANS device performs well in
all kinds of crashes , it just keeps your neck from breaking. Have a nice

Автор mandaltby ( назад)
You can see why the HANS device helps, I actually don't know if the HANS
device works as we'll on a side crash. Maybe a racer can tell us please. I
heard thats one of the reason of side pods on a car, but all this is a hard
crash to live through. Not at dramatic as the 82' Smiley crash, but every
bit as deadly. Just fucking horrendous man, bad crash

Автор Marhleet ( назад)
@dmarkj22 I'd think it wasn't as yet mandatory, but as he crashed backwards
/ sideways into the wall it might not have helped that much.

Автор BlacknRed81 ( назад)
Only if they had SAFER Barriers.

Автор Jason Kim ( назад)
I may be wrong because I admit I've only recently really started to watch
racing (Nascar, Indy, etc), but I would assume that technology regarding
safety was more than likely not the same 15 years ago as it is now. RIP
Scott Brayton, Dan Wheldon, and all the other drivers who passed doing what
they love.

@NOXXism Hitting your head against concrete at 230 mph doesnt seem all that
bad...people survive that all the time.

Автор Shane LeRoy ( назад)
@limabeat I remember being there I was 8 and I remember my dad saying he
had thought that he died when he crashed before anyone knew anything.

Автор Shane LeRoy ( назад)
@MrPorsche91730 I think thats him hitting the brakes

Автор NOXXism ( назад)
@limabeat as far as i know he didn't go from "230mph" to 0mph. So he could
have easily survived.

Автор MrPorsche91730 ( назад)
does anyone know if he lost a tire or somthing in the car broke? there as a
noise right before the car veered in the wall.

Автор limabeat ( назад)
I remember that day. We took our little boy to the track for the Indy 500
practice on my birthday. He had a little girl. Sad. I will never forget it.

Автор Jeff Williams (964 года назад)
Imagine having a million people watch your death, and try to judge how bad
it was? Come on people, it may not be as bad as Smiley or Moore's ends, but
he still died. Have some respect!

Автор NOXXism (1377 лет назад)
He died from that? I've seen a lot worse

Автор snappy452 ( назад)
@TestECull Im going to ignore your sanctimonious opinion on drinking and
just say rest in peace, Scott. I apologize for even coming close to
attaching myself to this video via some dumb youtube comment I made.

Автор TestECull ( назад)
@snappy452 No, as a matter of fact I didn't go digging very far back. Also,
I've never said dumb shit while I was drunk because I've never been drunk
in the first place. Don't really see a point in making onesself act stupid,
then feel like hell the next morning.

Автор snappy452 ( назад)
@TestECull Hey dumb fuck, care to read the reply I made 6 months ago? You
never said dumb shit while you were drunk, right?

Автор TestECull ( назад)
@snappy452 @snappy452 Outlawing indy cars because of an accident? God
you're dumb. Guess F1 should be banned too, there's quite a few fatal
accidents in that sport's history. And so should NASCAR. And rallying. And
touring cars. And football. For that matter, ban the morning commute too,
because that kills thousands every single day. Fucking idiot. Grow up,
learn that shit happens, and that nothing in life that's perfectly safe is
worth doing. You could die taking your morning piss.

Автор crezzwell ( назад)
Did not even look all that bad, seen a lot worse, just very unlucky poor
chap, probably broke his neck or something?

Автор MurphyMonster ( назад)
it would be one thing to die by your own fault, but by a tire?

Автор Buttoxin ( назад)
you try hitting a wall going over 200 mph and then see if you live or not.
cars are made to drive, not crash.

Still can't believe he died. There was an IRL race in New Hamphire later in
the season and all the advertisements for the race had Brayton's picture on
it because they printed it before the died.

How did he die? Did he hit the wall really hard?

That was a shocking day. I'll always remember Scott Brayton. I drove
through Coldwater, Michigan a few days after his death. Someone had put
little checkered flags all around the perimeter of his yard... so very sad.

Автор Scott Andrews ( назад)
@cmgww That is very true about luck. Right after the Gordon Smiley
accident, I remember A.J. Foyt said something like, "I don't care if you're
driving a tank - if you hit wrong, it's all over." So many times in these
accidents, the difference between dying and surviving can be determined by
the angle the car hits the wall. Just a few degrees can make the difference.

Автор pokemon56761 ( назад)
you have answered my question right

Автор cmgww (1422 года назад)
@pokemon56761 I will respond...all caps guy.... He hit on the left side.
His car was doing around 230 entering the turn. The fatality was because
the sidepods were much lower than today, and back then no driver wore the
HANS device...and there was no SAFER Barrier back then. It was a freak
accident even back then...plenty of drivers had hit the wall..He was just
unlucky. I know for a fact when the emergency workers approached him his
ears were bleeding, truly sad. I live here and we know...

Автор pokemon56761 ( назад)
What I meant is did it almost flip or did it flip and the wall hit the
drivers head because if you have seen it almost or maybe it caught air
after it hit the wall? please respond this answer to me at pokemon56761 and
also how can I put a picture on my channel where there is a shadow of a
persons head do I paste one on or upload one? please respond to this also
at pokemon56761! thanks

Автор ursuss100 ( назад)
@feefish001 Not only did they use no HANS at the time but the cockpits'
edges were much lower which left the head unprotected except by the
helmet...And, helmet or not, the head hitting the wall at high speed kills

it was invented by MRAF at the university of nebraska they did it for all
tracks not just indy

Автор David Swanson ( назад)
@endurocatfish Indycar invented the SAFER barrier at Indianapolis. I'm sure
this accident was one of the driving reasons for the development.

Автор endurocatfish ( назад)
@Phaedrus27 maybe indy should follow nascars example and get the safe
barriers....besides most of the tracks indy runs at nascar runs at so the
safer barriers are already in place.

@Muzzer27 You're right, it doesn't look fatal. But as you mentioned too,
speed was 375 km/h or 225 mph. Due to the cockpit's lack of security at the
time (particularly no side restraints and higher sides), Scott's head
struck the wall at impact which caused very severe head and neck injuries.

Автор Muzzer27 ( назад)
Doesn't really look fatal. But the speed was reportedly 370 km/h, so that's
accounts for everything.

@gardnerklein Oh yes but I have seen this type of crashes from Indy and
NASCAR racing in a 20 year span, and the drivers mostly walk away alive
from the wreck.

he'd still be alive

@TheCannabisKing He was travelling 375 kmh/225 mph when the right rear tire
blew. He died of basilar skull fracture because his head either hit the
wall or the edge of the cockpit.
