A 350 mph crash Sunday at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah critically injured a driver, KSL reports.
The crash took place about 12:30 p.m., the Gephardt Daily reported. The driver’s name and cause of the crash were not released.
The Bonneville Salt Flats, near Wendover, Utah, and the Nevada border, are popular with high-speed racing teams. Numerous land-speed records have been set there.
In another desert racing area, 39-year-old jet-car racer Jessi Combs crashed and died Aug. 27 while she was trying to break her own speed record at Oregon’s Alvord Desert, The Los Angeles Times reported.
Dubbed “the fastest woman on four wheels,” Combs also had appeared on several television shows, including “Mythbusters,” according to the publication.
