Watch Video! Ashton Torgerson Chili Bowl Crash Video Racing Accident Trending

We hardly see a race car driver ejected from their seat and sprawled out in the middle of a live track car racing survive, but that’s exactly what happened to young Ashton Torgerson Wednesday night at the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl.

Torgerson, a 16-year-old from Oregon, was running in a late-night preliminary when his midget car made contact with the wall and flipped several times.

Replays then show Torgerson ejected from his seat and thrown onto the track before the video cuts away. Medical personnel rushed over and he was taken to a local hospital, where, miraculously, it appears that he avoided a major situation.

“Ashton is awake and alert at the hospital. He has feeling in hands and feet and has passed his tests so far,” Torgerson’s PR company said in a tweet. “He’s now going into scans. We will continue to keep you posted.”
