The driver of a jet-powered stunt truck died in a crash at an air show in Battle Creek, Michigan, police said.
The SHOCKWAVE Jet Truck was being operated by Chris Darnell, 40, at more than 300 mph at Battle Creek Executive Airport.
"During the pyrotechnic portion" of the Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival, the accident occurred around 1:10 p.m.
A video captured by air show attendee Mike Westra shows the truck racing two planes before spinning and crashing.
On standby at the airport, emergency responders responded quickly, Westra said. "Within a minute or two they were putting water on the fire."
"It came to rest upside down," Westra told CNN after the fire was put out. A police investigation is underway.
Darnell Racing Enterprises owns and drives the SHOCKWAVE Jet Truck, which is capable of reaching speeds over 350 mph.
The accident resulted from mechanical failure, Darnell's father wrote. "Christopher loved the Air Show business."
