I’m watching the Indy 500 (probably won’t watch the whole thing; I’m far more likely to watch a whole NASCAR race as I know the players), and in the midst of an incident on the track one of the commentators refered to it as “a crash involving at least one car”.

(They are doing something nifty I’ve not seen before – they aren’t cutting away from the race for ads. Instead, they split the screen. The race gets a window about 1/6th of the screen size, the ad gets about 1/3, and statistics, graphics, and the name of the advertiser fill the rest. For the fan, this means that they don’t have to miss anything that happens during the ad. For the advertiser, it means that the fan isn’t getting up and hitting the fridge during the ad.)
