Ten fans were injured at the NASCAR Charlotte 2013 races when a cable holding a suspended television camera over Charlotte Motor Speedway broke during the Coca-Cola 600 and fell onto the track. The cable damaged the car of race leader Kyle Busch on Lap 122.

Ten fans were reported to have been injured with seven being treated and released with what were classified as "minor cuts and scrapes." Three fans were taken to a local hospital for further evaluation.

Due to the accident, the 400-lap race was flagged down for 27 minutes, reports ITAR-TASS.
