Just saw the footage on the news, looks Like Zanardi was exiting the pits and the car got out of control, was sideways across the track and Tagliani had no where to go. The front of Tagliani's car impacted just behind the front wheels of Zanardi's car, sheering the front of the car off.
They showed the recovery of the vehicle where the front whhels and nose assembly was caned onto the truck in one piece. The tub shared at that point.
What a horrific accident. It was a massive hit, somewhere arround 200 Mph (320 Kph).
At least he got away with his life but to loose both his legs....
There is a video clip of it on epsn.com. Don't think I want to see it again though...
