A deadly accident at the Windy Hollow Racetrack where authorities say a racecar went over a fence, injuring two people, and killing another.
Fans at the Windy Hollow Racetrack say two cars crashed, causing one to flatten a fence, and knock over a light pole.
"It was just total chaos for a while. There was wires popping, people running and screaming," says eyewitness Eugene "Willie" Hyde.
Daviess County Sheriff's Department says Ryan Peters was hit by the racecar.
"All kinds of scenarios run through your mind but, I really didn't think he would die," says Janice Peters.
The Daviess County Coroner says Ryan Peters died at the hospital from internal injuries.
Janice Peters is Ryan's grandmother, she raised him.
"He's my baby."
She says Ryan started in the sport in his teens and immediately fell in love with it.
"He loved putting the cars together, he loved racing. He said all of his friends were in the race family."
She says at first she worried about his safety.
"But once you go and see them race it is exciting and he had good skill as a driver."
When she would express her concern to her grandson he would tell her...
"Those things can happen anytime. They can happen on a freeway or they can happen on a racetrack."
Track officials say since the track was built in 1970 this is the first fatality.
Janice says Ryan knew the sport could be dangerous.
"He was very much apart of the sport, loved it. And if he had to go he probably would've chosen to go that way."
Track officials say they plan to race this weekend as scheduled.
