I finally found a video of Don McTavish's fatal accident. It's only aftermath footage, though.

Is this the only footage? I have heard that it was supposedly very graphic/shocking, but haven't ever known of it existing.

Ah, just posted this terrible in the youtube topic. My skin crawled when I saw this crash. Indeed, finnally the footage had reached the net.
Really the worst possible way of getting involved in a crash...

He hit the crossover gate and it gave way, letting him hit the blunt end of the concrete wall, much like Waltrip & Harmon's accidents at Bristol. You can kinda see the spot in the background if you stop the vid at the right point.
