Frightening wreck knocks Scott Dixon out of Indianapolis 500

Mike Hull has been on the other end of the race radio for Kiwi Indy Car star Scott Dixon for almost 15 years

A scary scene for Indianapolis 500 pole sitter Scott Dixon.

Jay Howard lost control of his auto on lap 53, and Scott Dixon rammed into him, before flying into the air and crashing onto a wall.

"A bit of a rough ride", Dixon told ABC's Dr.

"It's tough because you just don't know which way he's going to go off the wall".

Dixon, the 2008 Indycar champion, described it as a "wild ride".

Howard said he wasn't sure what caused him to hit the wall, whether a part broke in the suspension or something else.

When I saw the aftermath live and saw Dixon's engine on one end of the track and what was left of his vehicle on the other, I knew it was a serious crash.

'I'm glad he's OK too.

Dixon's Chip Ganassi Racing Honda went airborne, flying over the top of Helio Castroneves before landing on the inside SAFER barrier, ripping the rear end of his machine off.

Notably, Dixon was one of the favourites to win his second Indy 500 this weekend.

"I let Hunter-Reay go, tried to tuck in behind him but he pushed me out in the marbles". It was just a wild ride, man. "You just hold on and have faith in the safety advances that we've had over the years".

The race was red flagged to clean the track, but both drivers escaped without serious injury.

Both drivers were checked by medical professionals at the track following the incident. "To say I'm unhappy is an understatement".
