Wicked speedboat crash!

A speedboat on a qualifying run flipped and broke apart in southern California Friday.
 
The 8,000 horsepower boat was about one-third of the way into its qualifying run at the San Diego Thunderboat Regatta on Mission Bay when the accident occurred.

Witnesses said the boat, named "Whiskey River," was going about 145 miles-per-hour when it flipped and disintegrated.

The driver, who was pulled from the water about 20 seconds after the accident, survived the accident and said the start of the run was good.
