Security footage has emerged showing the horrifying moment world champion boxer Errol Spence Jr. flipped his Ferrari and was ejected onto the pavement before other cars slowly drove by the wreckage and his injured body without stopping.
The 29-year-old unified welterweight champion was rushed to a Dallas-area hospital early Thursday morning and is expected to recover.
KTVT's J.D. Miles tweeted out several security videos, one of which shows Spence's white $300k Ferrari 488 Spider convertible speeding into view before rolling onto its side and out of frame, kicking up debris along the way.
Another, longer video shows the aftermath of the crash in the distance as several cars meander through the wreckage and by Spence's injured body, the latter of which is not entirely visible.
The exact cause of the accident is not known.
Spence was not wearing a seatbelt at the time but is expected to make a full recovery. A statement from Premier Boxing Champions spokesman Tim Smith released Thursday evening said: 'Spence is awake and responding and his condition is listed as stable. He did not sustain any broken bones or fractures, but has some facial lacerations. He is expected to make a full recovery.
'He is currently resting with his family by his side. They want to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes and are extremely grateful to the Dallas first responders who rushed to the scene to attend to Errol after the accident and the doctors who are taking care of him at the hospital.'

The 29-year-old unified welterweight champion was on his way home from a nightclub when he crashed around 3am near I-30. The impact of the crash is said to have thrown him out of his car along Riverfront Boulevard in Dallas.
Without identifying Spence, police said the driver of the car was not wearing his seat belt. His identity has since been confirmed by a spokesman for Premiere Boxing Champions, a televised boxing series that produces and distributes Spence's fights.
'Errol was in an accident, and his parents are with him at the hospital,' read a statement provided to the Daily Mail by PBC spokesman Tim Smith. 'The doctors are monitoring his condition, but his injuries are not life-threatening. We will have further updates as the doctors update his condition. We're all wishing the best for Errol.'
Pictures emerged Thursday morning showing the mangled white Ferrari surrounded by police and medics.
Dallas Police released a statement early Thursday morning: 'At 2:53am a Ferrari traveling at a high rate of speed northbound in the 500 S. Riverfront Blvd... The Ferrari veered left over the center median onto the southbound lanes and flipped multiple times ejecting the driver who was not wearing a seat belt.
'The driver was taken to an area hospital where he is expected to live, but remains in ICU. The driver, a black male 29-years-old, was the only occupant in the vehicle. The name of the driver will be released at a later [time]. The cause of the accident is undetermined at this time.'
The white Ferrari appears to be the only car involved the accident.
Earlier in the evening Spence posted an Instagram Story showing a friend dancing in the Sidebar nightclub in Dallas.
Spence has two young daughters, Ivy and Violet, but has always kept the identity of the girls' mother and his marital status a closely-guarded secret.
He was born in Long Island, but moved to Texas at the age of 2.
In 2017, Spence won the IBF world welterweight title by beating Kell Brook in the Englishman's native Sheffield. Spence also holds the WBC world welterweight title after his recent split-decision victory over Shawn Porter.
The win moved Spence's record to 26-0. The powerful southpaw also has knockout 21 victories.
'This is a lifetime dream,' Spence said after his controversial win over Porter last month. 'It shows hard work pays off. ... Shawn Porter is a rough and awkward fighter. I didn't get off what I wanted to. He's a true champion. He made it tough ... (but) all my punches have bad intentions.'
Porter reacted to the news on Twitter Thursday: 'My dad always tells me 'this boxing thing is a part of your life but it's not going to last forever. U still have a lot of life to live after that.'
'With that, I'm praying for @ErrolSpenceJr & his family because he has a lot of life to live and I pray he recovers quickly & fully.'
Spence, a former Olympian, had been poised for a lucrative unification bout against undefeated WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford, who is considered by many to be the world's top pound-for-pound boxer.
'Praying for you champ @ErrolSpenceJr,' Crawford tweeted on Thursday. 'I know you will.'
