Video: Loose tire nearly decapitates driver during race

This is probably the scariest thing you will all day.

Seen here is driver Lloyd Read nearly getting his head taken off by a loose tire at the start of the IndyLights race in St. Petersurg a couple of weekends ago.

Here's how Read described the incident on YouTube:

Start of the first race of the season. It was going great up until turn 3. I never want to have to dodge a tire at 120 MPH again! So glad that Scott was ok after a scary suspension failure.

It goes without saying, but this could have ended very badly for Read. Wow.
