Fan captures up-close video of terrifying Coke Zero 400 wreck

Austin Dillon and several fans in his way sustained only minor injuries after Dillon's car flipped through the catch fence down the front stretch of Sunday's Coke Zero 400. It's a miracle no one was more seriously hurt. Instagram user Dylan Whitlock captured this video of the wreck from just feet away:

Dillon suffered only bruises, and of the five fans struck by scattered debris, only one required hospitalization -- and has since been released. Drivers around NASCAR described the scene to SB Nation's Jordan Bianchi. They're feeling pretty rattled, and very thankful for the catch fence.
