No that is NOT fake. That is Alex Zanardi's crash where he lost both of his
legs. I have some other pictures of it, one after the car came to rest and
you can he him sitting there (nothing left but the seat) and his legs are
just gone. Carbon fiber is no match for a spear of an Indy car going 220
mph. Think also about Tony Renna's crash where his tub was cut in half when
his car went airbourne and went over the fence and into a pole at full
speed. I haven't seen the pictures but I read it was also gruesome, he was
basically cut in half.
So yes, it can happen. Here's another example that was almost like Zanardi's
but not nearly as bad:
