Verizon IndyCar Series driver Justin Wilson remains hospitalized in a coma in the intensive care unit at Lehigh Valley Health Network Cedar Crest Hospital in Allentown, Pa., after sustaining a severe head injury during the Aug. 23 race at Pocono Raceway. He remains in critical condition.
INDYCAR continues to send its thoughts and prayers to the family and thanks the entire motorsports community for the outpouring of support.
Additional updates to Wilson's condition will be released when available.
Verizon IndyCar Series driver Sage Karam, who was transported by ground to the hospital after the crash on Lap 180, was evaluated and released. According to Dr. Terry Trammell, INDYCAR medical consultant, CT scans revealed no broken bones for the Chip Ganassi Racing Teams driver from Nazareth, Pa. Karam, 20, will be re-evaluated before being cleared to drive.
"First and foremost, I just hope everything is OK with Justin Wilson," Karam said. "Justin is the priority and everything else is secondary at this point. As far as the race, we had a really great race car and I felt comfortable and in a position to be in striking distance for the win. The car just unfortunately came around on me in the middle of Turn 1 and I had no indication it was about to go."
