Drag Racing Crash Tragedy

An Australian driver is in shock, feeling ``numb'', after his drag racer slammed into a crowd in the United States, killing six people. Queenslander Troy Critchley, 36, was driving in a charity event in Selmer, Tennessee, on Saturday, when his drag racing car skidded off the road and into hundreds of spectators, who were not protected by guard rails. Two girls aged 15 and one aged 17 were among the six killed as Critchley performed an ``exhibition burnout'' - when a drag racer spins his tyres to make them heat up and smoke - at a Cars for Kids charity event. Up to 18 more were injured in the collision, which sent bodies ``flying into the air'', said Selmer Police Chief Neal Burks. Amateur video of the crash showed the car's engine revving loudly before the vehicle sped down a highway in a cloud of smoke. After a few hundred metres the car skidded off the road.
