Patrick was in 26th place at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Subway 500 when she blew her right front tire while coming around a curve, ricocheted off the wall, and was hit by another car on the track, The Associated Press reports. Chunks of Patrick's car were strewn around the track and into the pit lane after the crash, but she was able to climb out of the car and was treated at the infield care center, according to the report.
"[The car] took a hard hit [on] both sides and I'm fine, so NASCAR is doing a good job at safety," she told reporters. "But no real good warning. The car wasn't all that tight and most of the (problems) were in the rear, so there was no real vibration that told me that was going to happen."
