Herbert Escapes Injury

SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium -- Briton Johnny Herbert escaped serious injury Friday when he crashed in his Benetton during the rainy, opening practice session for Sunday's Belgian Grand Prix motor race.


Herbert lost control of his car on an uphill and crashed into the pit wall, smashing the nose off his car, and then spun three times along the outside barrier before coming to a halt.


A team spokesman said Herbert was not seriously hurt.
