PICTURES: Haga's Miller accident

Noriyuki Haga is believed to have come away with nothing more than bruises following a massive accident during the second qualification session at Miller Motorsports Park.

The championship leader high-sided towards the end of the session, being flung over his Ducati Xerox and landing heavily on the track before sliding into the gravel pit.

Prompting a red flag period, although Haga was seen to be on his knees for some time after the fall, he was able to pick himself up and walk to the ambulance. Taken to the medical centre for checks, Haga is now back in his garage with some heavy bruising.

The Japanese rider, who broke his collarbone in an accident at Miller Motorsports Park last year, now has a free practice session to partake in before Superpole to allow him to decide whether or not to continue.

As ever, our expert snappers were alert when the spectacular accident took place, so to view simply scroll down and click your way through the sequence.

Indeed LAH indeed, Haga is hard as nails, and lucky for him he bounces better than Tigga! I got worried seeing the picture and reading the text thinking uh oh, please lord dont let him have broken anything that puts him out of action, fate cannot forsake nori the title this year ..... kinda disappointed for the race as if nori is bruised and battered he aint gonna be fit enough to give it his maximum but hey it would do spies good to take a big chunk of points of nori this weekend as it makes it all the more exciting in the championship! its now 22:11 uk time, and guess what live from miller motorsports the qualifying! i love eurosport! :)
