Some fan injuries and frustrated drivers after an accident that didn’t involve cars during Sunday’s NASCAR race.

FOX News Radio’s Paul Stevens reports:

A nylon rope, one of three ropes supporting a FOX Sports overhead TV camera — falling at the Charlotte Motor Speedway during this year’s Coca-Cola 600.

Ten fans injured — three hospitalized, seven treated on site. The camera itself not falling.

That rope coming down on lap 121 of the 400-lap race, delaying the race for 27-minutes while crews repaired damaged cars:

(Announcer) “Cable was on the track. That’s why we are now under a red flag.”

FOX issuing an apology, saying the camera system is used at many NASCAR and other sports events.
