Ken Block Released from Hospital After Spectacular WRC Crash [Video]


Known for pulling wild stunts behind the wheel of his Ford Fiesta rally car, Ken Block had zero intention of rolling the high-powered machine five times. But that's just what happened during a shakedown of the car ahead of the Rally of Portugal event this weekend.

Block, and co-pilot Alex Gelsomino were both admitted to hospital, after he lost control of the car in a 'fourth-gear incident' (read: going stupid fast). Both have since been released without injuries – although early reports indicated Block's flatbill cap may never be the same.

The car, unfortunately, was damaged too severely for Block to compete in this weekend's third-round of the World Rally Championship.

Watch the video after the jump.

Dam bad crash, and yea he is getting big with us Focus fans, we kinda concider the Fiesta apart of the focus family along with the fusion's, but as far as seeing him go up against the Europeans... I'm gonna say IDK, but he is taking down a lot of Subaru STI's with that car.
