RIP Dan Wheldon IndyCar Driver Dies After 15-Car Crash At Las Vegas Indy 300The car driven by Dan Wheldon burst into flames and broke apart during a multiple car crash at a race in Las Vegas today. Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon died today at Las Vegas Motor Speedway after his car became ensnarled in a fiery 15-car pileup, flew over another vehicle and landed in a catch fence just outside Turn 2 Dan Wheldon of England was killed in the crash. The 33-year-old racer was a two-time Indy winner, including this year's race. Three other drivers, including championship contender Will Power, were hurt in the pileup during Lap 13. Weldon was airlifted from the track to University Medical Center; about two hours later, his colleagues were told of his death. Dan Wheldon has passed away from unsurvivable injuries In his honor, drivers took part in a five-lap salute around the oval. IndyCar had not had a fatality since Paul Dana was killed at Homestead, Fla., in 2006, during a crash in a morning warm-up. The wreck left Townsend Bell upside down while smoldering cars and debris littered the track nearly halfway up the straightaway of the 1.5-mile oval. The accident appeared to start when Wade Cunningham's car swerved on the track and JR Hildebrand drove over the left rear of Cunningham's car. Hildebrand appeared to go airborne, and Cunningham's car shot up into the wall, setting off a chain reaction among the cars behind him.Indycar Crash at Las Vegas Speedway 2011 ~ R.I.P.
