A Palm Beach County driver suffered two broken legs as well as injuries to his spine, lungs and right arm in a crash during a weekend’s car race at Palm Beach County Raceway.
The 32-year-old was involved in a high-speed accident with a 27-year-old on the tri-oval, with his Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Dallara-Honda flying through the air and into the outside safety barrier, sending his car into a series of violent spins as he came back down the track and into the path of oncoming drivers.
A statement from the car race officials on Sunday said that the 27-year-old was “awake and alert”, which led to widespread relief across the paddock after the race was stopped for him to be extracted from the cockpit.
FHP has now revealed the full extent of the victim’s injuries, with the driver being treated at Delray MedicalCenter in Palm Beach County. “Schmidt Peterson Motosports driver is being treated for injuries to his lower extremities, right arm. He also sustained a pulmonary contusion.
“He will undergo a MRI and probable surgery at Delray Medical Center.
The other driver involved in the crash was also taken to a hospital in Palm Beach County with non-life threatening injuries.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in injuries.
