A scary incident took place at the Saturday's Formula One Grand Prix race in Germany as a cameraman was knocked over by a bouncing tire that came loose from the car of Mark Webber just as he was leaving pit row.
Webber had his tires replaced, but left the pit before one of his tires was secured back on his vehicle. The tire spun off Webber's car and rolled down pit row when it suddenly bounced up and knocked over a cameraman, who had his back turned and had no chance to see what was coming.
The cameraman, whose name is Paul Allen, suffered a concussion and is experiencing chest pains but is expected to be OK.
