A German teenager has miraculously escaped with her life after a terrifying 170mph crash in Sunday’s Macau Grand Prix. Formula 3 driver Sophia Floersch was taken to hospital after suffering a spinal fracture in a horror incident that saw the 17-year-old’s car fly through the air at high speed before hitting a media section. Floersch was speeding towards a tight corner when she lost control of her Van Amersfoort Racing car and slammed into an inside wall. After clipping the guardrail she smashed into fellow driver Sho Tsuboi, with the impact lifting the German high into the air. The terrifying incident, which spectators compared to a movie scene, saw Floersch fly over the track and smash into a platform that is used by photographers. One suffered a serious injury as a result of the crash, with another photographer and a race marshal also in hospital. Floersch tweeted on Sunday morning: “Just wanted to let everybody know that I am fine but will be going into Surgery tomorrow morning. Thanks to everybody for the Supporting messages. Update soon.” A medical report confirmed photographer Chan Weng Wang had suffered a laceration of the liver, while colleague Minami Hiroyuki has concussion. Race marshal Chan Cha In suffered a fractured jaw. Fellow racer Tsuboi was also transferred to a nearby hospital with back pain.
