13 fans injured in Indy multi crash

  • Three-time Indy 500 winner was injured after a multi car crash at Houston Grand Prix yesterday; officials said Dario Franchitti is going to be OK. The crash also left the Scotsman with a concussion, a fractured ankle and a spinal fracture while injuring 13 fans with flying debris. 

    Franchitti's car clipped the fire of Takuma Sato's car and flew into a fence during the final lap. Satos mentioned that he lost momentum during the last lap and hoped that "Dario is OK."

    Race William Will Power said the accident reminded him of Dan Whelson's two-year old crash in Las Vegas.
