Video: “Daddy Dave” Comstock Injured In Crash At Amarillo Dragway

2015-07-12_20-10-59“Daddy Dave” Comstock of Discovery Channel’s Street Outlaws fame is reportedly in stable condition this evening at an Amarillo, Texas-area hospital after riding out a devastating crash at the Amarillo Dragway in his brand Chevy II during a no-prep event. According to eyewitness reports and confirmed via video of the incident, Comstock lost control of the nitrous-fed machine early in the run, crossing over into the other lane before the car turned on its side and barrel-rolled numerous times, striking the wall but remaining inside the confines of the guardrails. Comstock was transported via ambulance, but no word is currently available other than his condition. We’ll have more on this developing story as it becomes known.

8/1 Update: Per Cassi Comstock via social media, x-rays and scans have been taken and the family is awaiting results. She reports that Dave did suffer a serious concussion in the accident. Images shared show cracks along the right side of Comstock’s helmet, suggesting a hard impact with the roll cage or a loose nitrous oxide bottle.

Our best wishes to Dave on a speedy recovery!
