Race car driver Dario Franchitti was injured when his car crashed into a wall at the Grand Prix in Houston on Sunday.
According to team owner Chip Ganassi, Franchitti was awake when rescue personnel got to him, and was not seriously injured, though he was complaining of back and ankle pain.
“He’s talking,” Ganassi said. “His ankle is a little sore. His back is a little sore. He’s going to take a trip to the hospital, but he is OK.”
The crash also included two other cars, but both drivers walked away from the accident. Several spectators were also injured.
