At today's Grand Prix of Houston there was a massive crash at the sweeper, turn five.
Dario Franchitti was bumped by Takuma Sato, which sent Franchitti at speed into the protective fencing.
The force of the impact sent debris flying upwards and, unfortunately, into the grandstands injuring 13. 10 spectators were treated at the scene while three were sent to the hospital for treatment. Franchitti has suffered a concussion, two fractured vertebrae as well as a fractured ankle.
Also roped into the crash was E.J. Viso.
Our thoughts are with the injured spectators and Dario Franchitti as he starts on his road to recovery.
Three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti was injured in a serious crash that also left 13 spectators hurt during Sunday's Grand Prix of Houston, authorities reported.
The wreck occurred in the last lap of the race, when Japanese driver Takuma Sato bumped Franchitti's car, sending it airborne into the protective fencing. The car spun multiple times against the fence, sending shards of debris flying toward the grandstands and shearing off part of its side.
Three spectators were sent to a local hospital, where they were listed in good condition Sunday night...
