What Happened In Discovery Show Crash?
What happened in the accident during the filming of Discovery’s Street Outlaws: Fastest In America? In August, 41-year-old Ryan Fellows was killed when racing his gold Nissan 240z against another driver. It was early in the morning. They were filming just out of Las Vegas. By the time Ryan was set to race, other cars had already raced. Now it was time for Fellows to race against another talent.
The race went as planned, but things changed when Fellows got closer to the finish line. It appears that the Street Outlaws star lost control of his vehicle. The Nissan crashed, then rolled over. Next, it went into flames.
Onlookers tried to help Fellows, but the fire was so intense that they could not do anything. Sadly, he was not saved. Moreover, Discovery filming ended early when this happened.
Finally, Ryan Fellows is survived by his wife Elizabeth Fellows, his son Josiah, and his daughter Olivia.
