British racer Stefan Wilson rushed to hospital with fractured back after horror crash in Indy 500 practice | The Sun
BRITISH racing star Stefan Wilson has been rushed to hospital with a fractured back.
That’s after suffering a horror crash in practice at the Indy 500.
The terrifying incident occurred on Monday halfway through the two-hour session.
Wilson collided with fellow driver Katherine Legge as they attempted to take the bend from Turn 1 into Turn 2.
The two cars then smashed into the hoardings by the side of the tarmac, with Wilson taking the brunt of the damage head-on.
Practice was halted immediately as medics rushed onto the road.

Legge appeared to be unharmed as she climbed unaided from her car.
But Wilson looked to be in a worse way as it took 10 minutes to remove him from the wreckage.
The ace gave a thumbs-up as he was put into a neck brace before being stretchered to a nearby ambulance.
However, Wilson will not be taking any further part in "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing."
