Indy 500 Winner Dan Wheldon Killed

Indy 500 Winner Dan Wheldon Was Killed in a Horrible 15-Car Crash at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway

33-year-old Indy 500 winner DAN WHELDON was killed yesterday in a 15-car pile-up at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.  On lap 13, two cars bumped and set off a chain reaction.  Then Wheldon ramped off another car, hit the wall, and his car caught fire. He was airlifted to a hospital, but two hours later, they announced he didn't make it.  He'd won the Indy 500 twice:  In May, and back in 2005.  Three other drivers were hurt, and it's not surprising . . . In the video, you can see THREE cars go completely airborne at one point.  The rest of the race was cancelled.
