Latest post of the previous page:

The fatal wrecks of the 1919 Indy 500 are here:

The wreck at 2:51, looks like the #22 car, which was Wilbur D'Alene, non-fatal. Motorsportrace posted a pic, which is offline, I probably have it.

Thurman's car was #18, but appears in video to be #8. It's clearly #18 when seen from other angles.

LeCocq's car there is no doubt about, as it burned.

And I just checked if I had any of the other ones, which I do not.

No, British Pathé's footage is the same. I don't know if there is a second video.
Actually, there's an Italian version with slightly different angles of the wreck:



0:57-1:02.

I'm putting the possible extra video in the lost footage list, as I'm convinced that the grainy pic in the CPdB is actually an enlarged screenshot from a piece of footage we have so far not been able to locate. I've also updated that thread with the items Sedre mentioned. Should have done so earlier, but I think I've caught up, now.
