Fans injured by debris at Daytona NASCAR Nationwide race following 10-car crash; Update: At least 28 hurt

Reports of injuries following a 10-car wreck at a NASCAR race in Daytona Beach continue to pour in, although early word of at least one fatality appears to be premature. Debris from the wreck managed to reach some spectators by the grandstand.

Prayers began to pour in immediately.

Harrowing amateur video shot by a spectator was uploaded to YouTube but was almost immediately blocked due to a copyright claim by NASCAR.

At a brief press conference just past 7 p.m., NASCAR representatives said that as many as 28 people had been injured.

    In the horror of an accident like this, it’s great to see the caliber of fan at NASCAR events–rushing to help those that are hurt, rather than running like maniacs. Using their own shirts as makeshift bandages.

    NASCAR fans take a lot of crap from Hollywood, the left and the media, but generally they are good people.

    — Personal experience from knowing many NASCAR fans. My prayers for those that are injured.
