Robert Wickens’ Injuries Worse Than Initially Reported

IndyCar driver Robert Wickens fractured his spinal cord and neck, as well as seven other serious injuries, when he crashed at Pocono Raceway.

The family of the Canadian driver revealed the injuries Wickens suffered when his car launched into the fence Aug. 19 at the Pennsylvania track. Among the injuries are a thoracic spinal fracture, a fractured neck, tibia and fibula fractures to both legs and a fractured right forearm.

He had surgeries this week at IU Health Methodist Hospital to repair fractures to both of his legs and hands and is expected to be moved to a rehabilitation center soon. It could be months before the severity of the injury is known. The Wickens family revealed the extent of his injuries Thursday through Schmidt Peterson Motorsports.  Read the full statement below.
