Driver Shigeru Terajima lost control of his machine on the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/suzuka+circuit/">Suzuka Circuit</a> start/finish straight, left the course at nearly 200 miles per hour and struck the inside wall where a corner worker was standing and monitoring the race. The <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/ferrari/458+italia/">458</a> immediately disintegrated, sending bits of carbon fiber bodywork, suspension components, wheels and tires scattering into the infield and across the race course. The passenger cell spun through the air before coming to a stop on its roof.<br /><br />Miraculously, both Terajima and the corner worker survived the incident. While the driver was transported to a local hospital in serious condition, he's expected to make a full recovery. The track worker, meanwhile, saw the incident coming and dove out of harm's way at the last possible moment, saving him from the brunt of the impact.
