A Palm Beach County driver suffered horrible injuries as well as other injuries to his spine, neck and right arm in a terrible crash during a weekend’s car race at Palm Beach County Raceway.
The 33-year-old was involved in a high-speed accident with a 41-year-old on the tri-oval with his Nelson Peters Motorsports Dallara-Honda. The car went 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 said that the 33-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 his cockpit which was all that was left by the wreck and the track to be cleaned up and repaired.
FHP have now revealed the driver suffered injuries to his spine, neck and right arm. He also sustained a pulmonary contusion.
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 a fatality.
