IndyCar's Wilson to return home after injury

  • Justin Wilson is returning to his home in Longmont, Colo. after being hospitalized for injuries sustained during a crash in the season finale of IndyCar. 

    The 34-year old was treated for three pelvic fractures as well as a small contusion. 

    Team owner Dale Coyne mentioned that Wilson "is in good spirits" and "doctors say he will be six to eight weeks of non-load bearing on his right leg before he can start rehab."

    His younger brother tweeted on Sunday saying, "Will be by JWs side all way until we get him home. Upgraded from walker to crutches, and complaining of hospital food... he's recovering fast!"
