IndyCar driver Justin Wilson dies from head injury at Pocono

Justin Wilson raced for five seasons in the IndyCar Series. He was 37.

Wilson was hit in the head by a piece debris from Sage Karam’s car. Karam, leading the race at the time, crashed by himself and debris from his car spread across the track. What appeared to be the nose cone of Karam’s car bounced on the track and struck a trailing Wilson in the helmet. Wilson was apparently knocked unconscious. His car then veered suddenly to the left and he struck the inside wall.

Wilson was airlifted to Lehigh Valley Hospital – Cedar Crest in Allentown, Pa., where he was in a coma.

IndyCar made the announcement of Wilson’s passing at approximately 9 p.m. ET Monday. The sanctioning body did not take any questions about his death and said he died while surrounded by his family. Wilson is survived by his wife Julia and their two children.
