Legendary Driver Frank Lockhart Killed - Thrown from Car
Legendary Driver Frank Lockhart Killed - Thrown from Car (1928). Lockhart
was an American automobile racing driver, and Indianapolis 500 winner, and
considered a legend in the sport by many historians.
On April 25, 1928, Lockhart's Stutz Black Hawk Special streamliner reached
198.29 mph (319.1 km/h) on a warmup run on Daytona Beach, Florida. On
Lockhart's return pass the Black Hawk Special cut a tire (probably on a
seashell), went out of control and tumbled violently across the sand,
throwing Lockhart from the car and killing him instantly. The film shows
the moment it happened.
