I don’t think the kids are hurt, the men in the truck are very hurt.” Witness Tami Kpoiasz said, “We kind of watched over them two guys to make sure they were OK because they looked like they were hurt the most.” Two men from the SUV were severely injured and loaded into rescue squads.

World’s longest car jump attempt ends in fierce crash
Chicherit was aiming to surpass Tanner Foust’s 332-foot record with a 360-foot jump in a modified MINI Countryman rally car. The jump, which took place this past Sunday, March 16, started well enough, with plenty of distance to clear the enormous gap. But the landing didn’t go so smoothly. MUST WATCH: Drag Racer Makes Awesome Save When 250-MPH Car’s Chutes Fail: Video Toward the end of Chicherit’s flight, the MINI nosed down sharply, landing almost perpendicular to the ramp and cartwheeling down to a stop, resting on its side. The wreck looks scary–and almost certainly was from Chicherit’s perspective–but fortunately he emerged from the MINI under his own power and has since been cleared by a precautionary MRI. He’s fine , apart from a few minor injuries. Though the jump record attempt failed, Chicherit has already logged the world’s first “unassisted” car backflip –in another modified MINI rally car.
