Big Wreck at Black River Stages 2012: Jerdan Falls Road

Displaying why stage rally even at a grassroots level can be a brutally dangerous game comes from this past weekend's Black River Stages 2012 event held in upstate NY.  Motorcycles and cars were racing in this NASA event and it contained a spectacular wreck by the Polish team of Peter Malazsuk and Dominik Jozwiak in their Subaru.  The team lost communication between driver and codriver showing just how integral that relationship is to this sport and were claimed by a boulder that has seen a number of unlucky competitors over the years.  Both drivers were as fine as one might hope after such a wreck--a testament to their cage builder.
