Video of horrific IndyCar crash at Pocono evokes thoughts of fatal wrecks

September 7, 2018

You may have seen our story yesterday about Robert Wickens. He’s the IndyCar driver who had a horrific crash at Pocono Raceway.

Luckily, Wickens left the scene awake and responsive. ESPN reported that the Canadian driver was being treated at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest, for “orthopedic injuries.”

Looking at the video, it could have been much worse. And not only for Wickens. You can see the crash started when Wickens — in the No. 6 car — and Ryan Hunter-Reay slightly touched tires.
