Video captured a spectacular crash in Macau that left a teenage driver with a fractured spine.

The airborne crash in the Formula Three Macau Grand Prix on Sunday showed Sofia Floersch appearing to clip another driver’s car and flying off the track at super high speed.

Floersch’s car then went through a catch fence, hit a structure on the perimeter and dropped to the ground.

The 17-year-old German racer tweeted that she is doing OK and will be undergoing surgery Monday. 

Macau is a former Portuguese colony near Hong Kong.
