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.
