Pocono IndyCar race resumed after dramatic crash

Robert Wickens lifelined following horrific crash at Pocono

Canadian rookie Robert Wickens was in hospital with "orthopedic injuries" after a frightening airborne crash on the seventh lap of the IndyCar Pocono race won by ex-Formula One racer Alexander Rossi. The heavy impact and extensive damage brought out the red flag.

IndyCar did not have another update on the Canadian driver's condition at the end of the race. He looked to the inside and all but pulled even. "It would be super to have him in one of our cars", Penske said. He left the auto and was out of the race. As a result, Wickens ran out of room, clipping the apron. The fencing was shredded and Wickens' vehicle reduced to just the tub, which came to a rest on the track along an interior wall.

"We weren't quite good enough in traffic, Rossi was very good running in traffic. I thought I had got past him". I left a half a lane. "I was pretty shocked I got hit in the back".

Wickens connected with Ryan Hunter-Reay and shot into a 360-degree spin into the fence.

Wickens flew into the safety catch fence coming out of Turn Two at "The Tricky Triangle".

Wickens landed back on the race track, wheels up.

In a way, though, Google is again chasing Amazon here, just the way it is chasing Amazon in the regular smart speaker market. Google retained its first-place position from the previous quarter, with 5.4 million shipments of its Google Home models.

"We came out in some traffic - it was really, really hard to get behind cars for some reason today", Rossi said.

Other cars were collected in the scary scene.

Multiple drivers visited the infield care center. Hinchcliffe was cleared and released from the medical centre. "We're just thinking about Robert".

IndyCar spokesman Curt Cavin told race broadcaster NBC Sports Network that Wickens was "awake and alert" and was being taken by helicopter to Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown for further treatment. It was reported by the series that the driver was alert before he was transported. These are the dangers we face, but we always hate to see it. "The start can be debated for years, but doesn't matter right now, focus on the well being of our friends and competitors". "Praying for you @robertwickens, I hope you're ok". "It's at moments like this that the unbelievable AMR @IndyCar safety team come into their own".

Wickens was on the inside of Ryan Hunter-Reay as the two entered turn 2 in the early laps of the race. Hinchcliffe appeared to be in pain and was seen grabbing his wrists as he slowly left his auto, but later left the medical tent and told NBCSN that he was on his way to visit Wickens in the hospital. Behind them, the accordion effect collected the second SPM Honda of James Hinchcliffe, Dale Coyne Racing's Pietro Fittipaldi and Rahal Letterman Lanigan's second vehicle of Takuma Sato, all fortunately without serious injury.
