1. "One of the worst accidents in Formula One history"

Driver: Martin Donnelly
Year: 1990
Race: Spanish Grand Prix
Complex Says: How in the world did this guy survive hitting a guard rail head-on going 160 mph? The crash was so bad that the front of the car disintegrated, the back of it tore apart from the frame, and Donnelly was ejected onto the track still strapped to his seat. It wasn't pretty. Donnelly suffered two broken legs, a broken collarbone, a broken nose, a punctured lung, and a host of other injuries. We're sure that part wasn't fun. But neither is dying—and somehow he managed to avoid doing that. Like all of the other guys here, he's lucky to still be alive.
