British IndyCar driver Wilson dies after crash

  • British driver Justin Wilson has died after suffering a serious head injury during a Pocono IndyCar 500 race.

    The ex-Formula 1 driver, who drives for the Andretti Autosport team, was hit by debris after a car crashed in front of him and he then hit a wall on Sunday.

    Wilson appeared to have been struck on the head by a piece of debris from American driver Sage Karam's car after it spun and crashed in front of him on lap 179 of the 200-lap race. Karam was able to get out of his car and was treated for a foot injury.

    The 37-year-old was airlifted to hospital from the Pocono Raceway. He breathed his last on Monday. (Source: IANS)
