Pole sitter Scott Dixon was involved in a terrifying wreck that sent him out of the Indianapolis 500.

Dixon's car struck the car of Jaye Howard, who had slid into the outside wall and then careered back across the track.

The car driven by Scott Dixon, of New Zealand, goes over the top of Jay Howard, of England, in the first turn during the running of the Indianapolis 500 auto race.

Dixon's car then catapulted toward the inside barrier, where it landed and split in half. Pieces of his car were left strewn across the track in Turn 2 as his car slid to a halt.

Dixon was already moving before his wreck car came to a stop. He got out of the car on his own power to a roar from the crowd and stepped into a waiting ambulance for a trip to the infield care center.
