Fernando Alonso walks away from Indy crash unhurt

Spaniard Fernando Alonso escaped injury when he crashed during an Indianapolis 500 practice run after his car lost traction in the middle of Turn 3 and made contact with the wall three times. The double Formula One world champion’s No. 66 McLaren Racing Chevrolet slid into the wall on the exit of Turn 3 before skidding across the track and into the interior barrier and striking the outside barrier again. When his car came to a stop, the 37-year-old managed to get out unassisted and was later checked, cleared and released from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s Infield Medical Center. Before the crash, Alonso had recorded 46 laps, with a best of 225.433 mph. Alonso on May 26 will try to join Graham Hill as the second driver to achieve the “Triple Crown of Motorsport” by adding an Indy 500 win to his triumphs at the Monaco Grand Prix and 24 Hours of Le Mans.
