A Formula E driver has remarkably survived a terrifying crash where the car went airborne before flipping and landing upright.
Alex Lynn was sent flying into the air after his battle with Mitch Evans for 14th place went horribly wrong.

The pair clipped wheels at the Diriyah Open with three laps to go and Lynn was sent hurtling into the air, which was was described by Evans as an 'aeroplane crash'.
“It was not a nice accident. Basically, I was defending hard from Alex into (turn) 18 and he drove close to the wall,” Evans said.
“He didn’t really back out of it. Was there room? I’m not sure, I need to see the replay. I hope there was and I didn’t do anything out of order.
“But he clipped my rear wheel and had an aeroplane crash. It was really nasty.”
Lynn was rushed to hospital as a precaution.
Fortunately for the driver he was later released after escaping serious injury.
Fans were also quick to praise his opponent, Evans, after stopping after the crash to check on his rival.

Evans spoke to reporters after the crash and said he had checked on his friend to make sure he was fine.
"He seems all fine but he’s gone (to hospital) as a precaution to make sure there’s nothing after the shock has worn off,” Evans said.
“It was not a nice moment. At one point I could see him above me. It was not nice. But the main thing is he’s all good.
“I saw him go into the wall and I jumped out to make sure he was OK. You never want to see that sort of stuff. He’s a friend as well. You don’t want to see people go through that.”
