(WTNH)– A terrifying crash was caught on camera out on the water in Missouri.

It happened during a speed boat race when one of the boats went airborne and ended up flipping over a number of times. Someone watching the race was able to take video of the speedboat airborne.

Both racers were injured badly enough to be taken to a local hospital. Their condition is unknown at this time.

Authorities say high speed and windy conditions were the likely cause of that accident.  The accident remains under investigation.
