James Hinchcliffe's misfortune in qualifying at the Indianapolis 500 continued Saturday, when the Canadian driver crashed in Turn 2.

Hinchcliffe lost control of the car, which tipped on its side before settling back down. He was able to leave the car under his own power and received an ovation from the crowd.

"The car was on the edge for sure. ... Something just caught me in [Turn] 2," Hinchcliffe told NBC Sports. "... Pretty much our nightmare."

The IndyCar Series tweeted that Hinchcliffe had been checked, cleared and released from the medical center.
