Rookie Sage Karam and Justin Wilson were both hospitalized after a wicked crash involving the two drivers in the IndyCar race at Pocono Raceway.
Karam lost control of his No. 8 Comfort Revolution/Big Machine Record Chevrolet and was transported by ambulance to Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown, PA for treatment of a right foot injury.
Unfortunately, Justin Wilson suffered a head injury when a piece of debris from Karam’s car struck him in the helmet. He then lost control of his car and hit the inside pit wall hard.
Wilson was airlifted from the track and taken to the Lehigh Valley Hospital as well. There is no further word on his medical condition.
Wilson’s team boss Michael Andretti said: “Our thoughts and prayers are with Justin right now, we just hope he’s OK.”
“I saw the trucks around him, they said he was in the ambulance, so I thought he was OK with Sage, but I have no details,” said race winner Ryan Hunter-Reay. “He’s my friend first and foremost, and he’s a teammate. It’s a bit hard not knowing anything.”
