IndyCar driver Robert Wickens is being treated for injuries to his lower extremities, right arm and spine following a violent accident early in the IndyCar race yesterday at Pocono. IndyCar said the Canadian sustained a pulmonary contusion and will undergo an MRI and probable surgery at Lehigh Valley Hospital Cedar Crest in Allentown. The 29-year-old rookie was attempting to pass Ryan Hunter-Reay when the two cars slightly touched. That caused Hunter-Reay's car to careen into the wall and Wickens' car was pulled along for the ride. Once Wickens' car soared over Hunter-Reay's and hit the fence, it spun round and round like a top. The fencing was shredded and Wickens' car was reduced to just the tub, which came to a rest on the track along an interior wall. The impact of the wreck tore out a large section of fencing that needed almost two hours to repair.
