A 17-Year-Old British Racing Driver Injured In Serious Crash
17-year-old British racing driver, Billy Monger, has been involved in a 'horrific' crash at Donington Park today.
The young talent was racing in the F4 British Championship at the Leicestershire circuit when he ploughed into the back of a seemingly slow, or stopped, car.
As other drivers quickly moved out of the way, an unsighted Monger, smashed into the rear of the other car, believed to have been driven by Finnish racer, Patrik Pasma.
The accident was captured on dashcam and streamed on TV as part of the race coverage.

The race was stopped immediately as paramedics attended to Monger, with an air ambulance later arriving on the scene.
The British prodigy remained in the car for 45 minutes after the accident, while Pasma was 'taken to the on-site Medical Centre for assessment' and was 'fully conscious and able to communicate with team personnel' according to Carlin Racing.
Monger was 'trapped', as reported by ITV Sport, but was 'conscious' whilst being tended too.
