Allan McNish's No. 3 Audi collided with a Ferrari in a spectacular crash at the 24 Hours of Le Mans on Saturday, bringing out the safety car so that the debris could be cleared.
The No. 2 Audi of pole-sitter Benoit Treluyer remained in the lead after three hours of the race, which is won by the car that completes the most laps in 24 hours.
McNish was in second place after about 50 minutes when he banged into the No. 58 Ferrari driven by Anthony Beltoise while trying to make a pass. The Audi veered into a pile of tires and broke into pieces.
McNish walked from his car and was taken to a medical center and then a hospital for further checks.
A total of 56 cars started the race's 79th edition.
