British F4 driver Billy Monger in horrific crash at Donington Park

Pasma's car was stopped on the track in front of Monger when Monger slammed into the back of

While Pasma was reportedly OK, it took an hour for Monger to be extracted from his vehicle after suffering leg injuries.

Billy Monger, 17, was involved in a serious crash Sunday during a British F4 race at Donington Park in England.

On-ground medical teams and an air ambulance quickly arrived at the scene of the accident but the crash was so severe that they were unable to remove Monger safely from the vehicle for some time.

The train of cars left Monger unsighted and he did not slow in his JHR Developments vehicle, which went into the rear of Pasma as the cars went through Schwantz Curve.

The F4 event was a support race for the British Touring Car Championship weekend at Donington, and Autosport reports that the second BTCC race scheduled to take place after F4 went on as planned following the wreck.

"Patrik, who is fully conscious and able to communicate with team personnel, will now be transferred by ambulance to the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham for further checks and observation overnight".

Monger was in the vehicle for 90 minutes before being airlifted to the nearby Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham. He has since been taken to the Queen's Medical Centre for further assessment.

Footage of the wreck can be found here, if you choose to watch.
