Horrific Lamborghini Gallardo Crash....really sad video, kinda NSFW

I say its NSFW because of the people screaming. It is really scary to watch, you can hear the tone of the people voices and it makes your stomach turn.

The embed won't work. Do i just paste the video URL in between the [u2b] things?

Here's a link:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXjzO...layer_embedded

And here is them pulling the driver out, at about 1:15 into video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAgFK5M2PRM#t=0m33s

I hope this driver survives this. He was in the fireball for over a minute. Let us all pray for him.

Driver survived. He has been transferred to a different hospital in Italy. No longer on a respirator. The bigger problems, according to the driver's friend, are the burns on his legs.

To imbed, you take the number of the video as in here PAgFK5M2PRM&NR

and paste it between [UtwoB][/UtwoB] (I subbed two for the number 2 so it would show up)

[u2b]PAgFK5M2PRM&NR[/u2b]

kind of an inappropriate way to try to put the fire out.
seeing the time pass, makes you want to be wearing a nomex and get in there yourself, good thing the driver recovered.

NO SHIT! Seconds are crucial in that kind of situation. I mean REALLY?, 40 fucking fire extinguishers? That hose comes out after the fact, 2 minutes later? Can a fireman on the forum chime in here?

This is awful!

Damn thats really horrible. how the corner workers/fireman should have worried about the driver rather than the fuel spill, but than again im no fireman or corner worker who knows the procedure to certain accidents, but seeing all those guys in fire suits and the crew member in just a regular shirt get in there and pull him out is amazing

what the hell happened?

I would like to know two things about that car:

1 - did it have a quality fuel cell?

and

2 - did it have a fire suppression system?

Why didn't the corner worker dudes have decent fire extinguishers? Those first few were like pissing in the ocean.
