German driver Sophia Floersch has suffered a spinal fracture in a high-speed crash during a Formula 3 race in Macau but said from hospital she was "fine".

Videos of the accident posted online show race cars negotiating a right turn when Sophia's auto suddenly hurtles in the air above the tracks, strikes another vehicle driven by Sho Tsuboi, flies over the race barriers and crashes into the fencing behind them.

Everyone involved in the crash, including Floersch, Tsuboi, two photographers, and a marshal, was rushed to the hospital following the incident.

Both Floersch and Tsuboi have been transported to a local hospital, though a statement released by race organizers has confirmed that Floersch was conscious in the aftermath of the accident.

A medical report released by Floersch's team, Van Amersfoort Racing, revealed the German was conscious but that she had sustained a spinal fracture. Thanks to the @fia and @hwaag_official @MercedesAMGF1 who are taking great care of me.

Gillum congratulates DeSantis on winning Governor
The recount by machine showed DeSantis leading Gillum by more than 30,000 votes, an insurmountable lead. DeSantis' margin was above the 0.25 percentage points required for a manual recount, notes NPR .

The injured marshal, Chan Cha In, suffered a laceration of the face and a fractured jaw.

She later took to Twitter and thanked everyone for their support.

Once it was restarted, the race was eventually won by Red Bull junior driver Dan Tickum after a total of eight drivers failed to finish due to various accidents, but it was Floersch's which was the most significant. According to the Motosport.com report, Floersch rear-ended the then-15th placer Jehan Daruvala on a flat-out part of the track, which put her out of control onto TOM'S Dallara-Toyota of Sho Tsuboi. "Sophia was really close to Jehan, so when Jehan braked early she had no time to react".

The race was stopped immediately while medical crews attended the scene.

"I just hope she's OK".
