MERIDIAN - Two drivers were able to walk away from a violent crash that sent one car slamming into the fence at Meridian Speedway Saturday night.

According to a report from the speedway, drivers Bob Bachman and Dean Waltman collided, and Bachman's car catapulted over Waltman's, and flew into the catch fence near the grandstands.

Both drivers climbed out of their vehicles and were apparently uninjured, officials said. No spectators were reported to be injured.

Repairs were made to the fence, and racing resumed about 30 minutes later.
