It didn’t quite turn out like Indycar racing driver Sarah Fisher’s dream week. Fisher, a native of Long Island who began racing in the 2010 Indy Lights series, was driving a new 2018 Jeep Wrangler through Carroll County on New Year’s Eve, when the test drive went awry. In a video posted by the Connecticut magazine, CAROW.TV, the Wrangler takes a huge right-hander at a notoriously difficult bend on the Breinigsville Road turn. The car makes an initial left-hand turn, then a second twist, over a hill, then back to the left hand turn. The driver was unable to slow down and the car was precariously teetering and over a small embankment. By the time the car hit the surface of the road the tires were tipping over from under it. Fisher swerved to avoid the vehicle, before the one in front of her hit a couple trees. She was unharmed, although the car had sustained heavy damage.
Fisher took to Twitter to apologize and thank everyone for their kind words.
Thanks to everyone for reaching out and their well wishes. We are all okay. pic.twitter.com/a92XAE7Gmu — Sarah Fisher-Price (@SarahFisherPrice) January 1, 2018
The video shows her hands and legs swinging out from under the car.
