That looked scary.. At first it looked to me the front was ripped off.. I was afraid for his legs, but it was just the black of the nose.
Thank god he’s pretty fine as it seems.
The driving standards should be reviewed.. and the tracks they visit!
Houston, Sunday, Oct. 6, 2013 – Medical update from Dr Michael Olinger, IndyCar director of medical services:
Izod IndyCar Series driver Dario Franchitti was admitted awake and alert to Memorial Hermann Texas Medical Center in Houston for a concussion, spinal fracture that will require no surgery and a fracture to the right ankle. He will be kept overnight.
Franchitti was injured in a last-lap collision with Takuma Sato on Sunday in Race two of the Shell and Pennzoil Grand Prix of Houston.
Reminds me a lot of the Australian GP crash involving Villeneuve where Marshall Graham Beveridge was killed. Heavy impact, thank god no marshalls or spectators were injured, and that Dario should recover.
