Wickens suffers multiple injuries in Pocono crash

The Dallara IR-12 racecar competing at the 2016 Indy 500

Wickens was airlifted to a hospital with what IndyCar called "orthopedic injuries" and the race was stopped for almost two hours to fix 80-feet of fence and leave at least one driver grumbling about safety.

There are three races left in the season. "Hopefully, we'll see him back in the vehicle soon", Hinchcliffe said.

Although deaths are rare in the sport since recent safety innovations have come into effect, both IndyCar and Formula One last suffered tragedy within a month of each other in 2015.

IndyCar said Canadian driver Wickens was awake and alert as he was taken to a hospital. "If we put a auto out for Stewart, it's got to be the best in the field".

"Somewhat of a frustrating day", Dixon said.

Dixon starts an unfavorable 13th.

Kerala floods: As rainwater recedes, fear of disease outbreak looms
An Indian Navy team made a temporary rope bridge across a stream in Thrissur district on Sunday to rescue 100 people stranded for days.

"It was right in front of me". It looks like two cars touched and caused a chain reaction. "It's unfortunate but I just hope Robert is okay". Wickens' vehicle also heavily damaged the catch fence.

Race organisers eased some concerns about his health after the incident.

Medical staff were alongside Wickens nearly immediately, stabilising the driver before transporting him via helicopter to hospital. "He has been transported by helicopter to hospital", they said. The fence was destroyed and part of Wickens' Honda scattered over the track. Wickens was admitted with orthopedic injuries.

The rest of the race is now delayed, but it's expected to resume as soon as debris is cleared from the track.

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

The celebration may have seemed normal, but thoughts couldn't help stray toward Wickens. "We were able to roll off instantly (to start the weekend) competitive and strong".

Other drivers, James Hinchcliffe, Takuma Sato and Pietro Fittipaldi, who were also affected by the crash, were all cleared of medical examinations.

Hinchcliffe, of Oakville, Ont., seemed to be in pain, grabbing his wrists as he slowly left his auto.

"The fact that we were able to (win the race) is just a testament to the auto I had from Andretti Autosport, really the work that my teammate Zach Veach put in at the test here last week", Rossi said.

He not only has to hold off Rossi, but former series champions Josef Newgarden and Power aren't out of contention yet.

"I was lucky to get out of that one", said Hunter-Reay. He took the checkered flag 4.4982 seconds ahead of Team Penske's Will Power to collect his third win this season and second in as many races, on the heels of a July 29 triumph in the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio.
