Video Also Shows the Damaged Car
Dramatic video emerged showing Lutz’s damaged car.
His co-star Chuck didn’t like that people are sharing the photos. He also revealed that Lutz was “still in the hospital for observation” but was doing better.
“Just my 2 cents: yes Jeff Lutz had a accident and is ok, someone from filming leaked these pics and so now, IMO it was Lutz that should have shared his pics first and let the world know, but people would rather boost there number on there Facebook page rather than being a good human!!!! Some people really suck, we see you and gonna block and ban you from our posts and filming!!! Ps, Jeff is doing better and still in hospital for observation, prayers for him and his family are greatly appreciated, I will share pics after Jeff lutz does out of respect, carry on, and Happy Mothers Day,” Chuck wrote on Facebook.
People offered prayers and positive comments for Lutz in the comment thread. “Being able to survive these horrific wrecks is a testament to quality and safety being built into these incredible fast vehicles. Here’s to your speedy recovery Jeff,” wrote one.
“Glad you are ok. Dont have much concern about the 57, You can build another one but we cant get another Jeff Lutz built,” wrote another. “Jeff! I’m sure that you are a little bruised up and sore as hell, but thank the good lord that you are still with us. He was most definitely watching over you,” another person wrote.
