The Indianapolis 500 is considered as "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing", famously known as Indy 500. It is organized every year at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Speedway, Indiana (U.S.) drawing a massive crowd from across the world to witness this motor racing spectacle. It is conducted as a part of Verizon IndyCar Series which is a top-notch American Championship for open-wheel formula cars also known as "Indy Car Racing". It has always been a zealous show to look upon but it is not always the bright side up and hence deadly crashes are an intrinsic part of the race.

Here are the frightful Indy 500 crashes that left the fans in shock.

Patrick Bedard a racing driver and a journalist who is known for writing in the magazine "car and driver" decided to have a second thought over the Indy 500. During the race Bedard was making the exit out of turn-3 where his car smashed into the walls, fragmented into pieces while he was still struggling in the cockpit. The car flipped several times finally landing in the infield. The track marshalls and the medics reached him in no time and rushed him to hospital. He was lucky to get away with a broken Jaw and suffered a concussion and later made the statement that he didn't remember the incident at all. He never drove again at Indianapolis 500 ever again.
