    Terrible accident at Donnington Park

    A terrible accident happened at Donnington park racing circuit involving Billy Monger.
    The poor lad lost both of his legs in that crash.
    There is a collection going around for him and so far its raised over 500,000 so far.
    The video is graphic you have been warned!

    I was watching that race meeting on tv that day and saw it happen.
    Por lad.
    Nice to see so many caring and generous people out there though.

    Loss of legs terrible, but lucky to be alive, hope he can get back to a normal life you never know he may be able to continue driving someday, good luck to him!

    Bad luck about the accident, great that so many people have donated so much..

    I dont want to seem to be a killjoy, but 2 things come to mind, firstly that to get into this form of Motorsport needs lots of money even to just get started, secondly this Boy should have been insured either by his Team, or by the racetrack, surely this insurance would cover this eventuality ?.

    I thought the same - I'd like to understand his families' financial status before donating here instead of other worthy causes.

    You are both right, you need lots of talent and money to be in a sport like he is.
