Mike Conway can't seem to catch a break. He seems to have bad luck following him. Back in the 2010 Indy 500, Conway had an unfortunate crash on the very last lap that set him airborne and left him injured.
Fast forward two years to the 2012 Indy 500 and Conway tragically made an encore performance. On the 79th lap between turns 1 and 2, Conway lost control of his Honda. He was sliding about when Will Power, the driver right behind him, struck the squirreling Conway and sent his car into the wall.
Conway's car lost a tire that struck the front of Helio Castroneves' No. 3 Chevrolet, according to the Detroit Free Press. The publication also reported that during a pit stop, Conway accidentally struck a crewman and as a result, damaged the front wing of his car.
Fortunately, Neither Conway or Power were injured in the accident. Conway was apologetic to the sponsors and the cars. Hit the jump to see video of the crash from various angles. Footage from Conway's point of view starts at 1:20.
