The incident occurred during the first lap of Heat 2 at the 2022 Columbia Cup during the 2022 Water Follies weekend.

The video was captured of the high-flying hydroplane wrecking and it was all caught on camera from inside the boat by the H1 Unlimited Hydros and was posted on Youtube.

Talk about a scary incident, luckily driver Dave Villwock escaped unscathed but you can't say that about the boat. The boat was unable to finish the race.

KNDU's Tracci Dial managed to get a video of the crash from a different angle which you can check out below:

All in all, it was another fantastic Water Follies weekend. I bet racegoers can't wait until 2023.
