Sometimes,seeing something isn't believing, because it's hard to imagine that the young lady driving the vehicle in the flying crash scene below would be on Twitter a few hours later.

But that's exactly what happened. The driver, 17-year old Sophia Floersch of Germany, was behidn the wheel of the Van Amersfoort Racing car in Macau Grand Prix's Formula Three final on Sunday, when she apparently lost control. That's when her vehicle launched over the top of the other racers and she slammed into the track fence.

The footage, again, is unbelievable.


Different angles:

Nevertheless and true to her age group, a few hours later Floersch was on social media.

That surgery is most likely to address the fractured spine.

The area Floersch crashed into was for photographers and race marshals, of whom three were injured and taken to the hospital. The BBC reported that one photographer suffered a concussion, another a "liver laceration", and a race marshal had a fractured facial bone.

The driver with whom Floersch's car made contact also went to the hospital for back pain after the impact.

Thankfully no one was killed.
