Justin Wilson Suffers Head Injury From Flying Debris At Pocono
IndyCar driver Justin Wilson was rushed to the hospital after he appeared to suffer a head injury when he was struck by flying debris in the final laps of today's ABC Supply 500 at Pocono. Wilson was knocked unconscious and flown by helicopter to a hospital in Allentown, Pennsylvania according to news reports. Sage Karam, who was leading the race at the time, spun out and struck the wall in Turn 1 of the track. It appears debris from Karam's car was what struck Wilson in the head. The race went on and Ryan Hunter-Reay, Wilson's teammate, went on to win the race under caution. No word on Wilson's condition yet. Let's hope for the best for him and his family. Karam suffered a minor foot injury in the crash and was able to get out of his wrecked car under his own power.
UPDATE: A statement released by IndyCar indicates Wilson is in a coma in critical condition. Not good news.
