I found it always really strange that his head (helmet) was still moving at 1:20 in the car ?
Cause of death was brain death . Probably his neck was broken by the impact.
For some of us the images can be disturbing . I'm sorry for that .
May his poor soul RIP ...

It appears that is was the impacted wheel that flew up and came down on his helmet.Not even today's helmets could save you from that and of course the side impact with no HANS neck protection,side sponges and the halo that would have saved him today.
