According to interview from oldracingcars.com (https://www.oldracingcars.com/drivers/i ... i-Bonanno/)
"When the accident happened in Jerez, I was in one of the leading positions but unfortunately that’s one of the risks of the job. The impact was hard and I left the track at over 200km per hour going headfirst into the barrier and breaking both legs" " I was lucky because the car broke in two with my legs trapped in the broken section but since I ended up in a pile of tyres the front end didn’t fly away and rip off my feet."

It seems that there was a big crash with possibly split monocoque. Crash happened at lap 9 http://www.ultimateracinghistory.com/ra ... ceid=18440 at according to his words, mr Bonnano was running in front so maybe cameras could pick some footage of it.
According to http://motorracingvideoarchive.com/?/video/1566 there may be long video about this event. Duke's Video F3000 reviev of 1990 F3000 season does not mention the accident. Does anyone have a video or photo of it?

Wow, never heard. I knew that Bonanno had a scary accident at Vallelunga during 1991 that left him dazed, but nothing else...
