A NASCAR race at the Daytona International Speedway was disrupted by a harrowing crash that sent debris flying into the stands and left some fans injured.
As CNN reports, shredded debris flew into the racetrack barrier, with some reaching 20 feet up to the second level of the track's stands.
At least one fan who witnessed the event caught it on camera and promptly uploaded it to YouTube — but the video was blocked by NASCAR on copyright grounds just minutes after it went live. (Update: YouTube has restored the original video, which you can watch below.)
According to Reuters, at least 29 people including one driver were injured in the multi-car crash; 14 people were sent to nearby hospitals, with another 14 being treated at the race track.
NASCAR claims all rights to film and broadcast of anything that happens at its events.
But taking down a video of a dangerous crash that injured spectators has sparked a backlash from observers who see it as an improper use of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, which is typically used to suppress pirated content like music and movies.
Despite the takedown request by NASCAR, the eyewitness video has already been shared on the internet and can be viewed above.
NASCAR officials are optimistic that the 55th running of the Daytona 500 will proceed on Sunday as planned.
