Video still from the crash.

Someone captured on film an insane drag boat crash at the 2010 Augusta Southern Nationals drag boat event over the weekend.  A local news station posted the video on its website. The driver was taken to the hospital for a possible broken leg. According to this news report, he was doing about 167 mph when he lost control.

The fastest I’ve ever gone in a boat is 116 mph in a 46′ Cigarette named American Muscle a few years back, and that was a trip. Going 50 miles faster than that on a boat the size of a doormat? Insane.
