Unfortunatley there are quite a few such events of that time that people forget about with the modern era of safety (witness Kubica's accident in Canada last week). To name a few: -
Tom Pryce, 1977 South African Grand Prix (hit a marshall crossing the track)
Ronnie Peterson, 1978 Italian Grand Prix (hit the barriers head on in a startline accident)
Gilles Villeneuve, 1982 Belgian Grand Prix (hit a slow moving car during qualifying)
Ricardo Paletti, 1982 Canadian Grand Prix (hit the back of a stalled car at the start)
If you have an interest in the sport, or just a morbid curiosity, there are a few videos you can download at http://www.formula1news.it/dati/video.htm
