Toomas Heikkinen Rally Car Crash at X Games [VIDEO]

Finnish RallyCross driver Toomas Heikkinen broke his left ankle and suffered abdominal injuries when his car crashed Friday into the metal jump ramp on the RallyCross course during a practice session.

It’s pretty remarkable those are the extent of his injuries, and if you don’t believe me just watch the video.

The 21-year-old came up short attempting a jump over a 50-foot gap, where he collided headfirst before falling down and landing on his hood in the gap.

He was able to crawl away from the accident fortunately conscious and alert. He’s set to undergo a CT scan according to X Games officials, and is not currently scheduled to compete in Sunday afternoon’s final event.

The front end of his Ford Fiesta rally car sustained significant damage in the crash and fluids from the car caught on fire after he had left the vehicle. Jump practice was canceled after the crash.
