Mike Conway's Spectacular Crash in Indianapolis 500 Race

British IndyCar driver, Mike Conway, will miss at least three months with back and leg injuries from his frightening crash in the Indianapolis 500.

Conway had surgery for multiple fractures in his left leg and has a compression fracture in his back.

The crash happened on lap 199. Conway was going about 220 mph through the short chute between turns three and four, and couldn't avoid running into the back of Ryan Hunter-Reay.

The contact sent Conway airborne and into the catch fence, splitting the car into two large pieces though the driver's seat remained intact.

He was airlifted to a local hospital after the race, where he had surgery.
