Kelly Harvey is a Fort Collins tow truck driver who enjoys drag racing during his free time. But on Saturday, speed nearly killed him. During a race at Pikes Peak International Raceway, he wiped out, with his 1955 Chevy rolling out of control, causing his seat belt to snap and his legs to fly through the car's windshield -- and yet he walked away, hardly worse for the wear.
We've got two views of Harvey's spectacular tumble: the first as shared on the Colorado Street Outlaws Facebook page, the second a piece from 7News that includes an interview with Harvey and footage offering the best look at that legs-meet-windshield moment. Buckle up and check them out below.
