IndyCar driver Robert Wickens' long road to recovery
We are getting word of the extent of the injuries suffered by IndyCar driver and Guelph native Robert Wickens when he crashed into a fence at Pocono Raceway last month.
His family says he suffered a thoracic spinal fracture, a fractured neck, tibia and fibula fractures to both legs and a fractured right forearm.
Wednesday, Wickens was named the IndyCar Rookie of the Year.
He is the highest-scoring rookie driver this season, sitting seventh overall.
His family says he will soon be moved to a rehab facility to begin recovering from the spinal chord injury.
