Indy driver Dan Wheldon killed in wreck
Two cars touched tires, instigating the incident in the pack running inches apart on the high-banked 1.5-mile oval. Wheldon's car, ensnared in the jumble in the middle of the racetrack, flew over another and caught part of the catch fence just past the apex of Turn 2. The incident left cars smoldering and car parts strewn along the backstretch.
