IndyCar driver Justin Wilson is in a coma and in critical condition after being hit in the head with debris during a crash at Pocono Speedway on Sunday.
After Sage Karam spun out and slammed against the wall, a large piece of debris fell off his car and struck Wilson, who then seemed to lose consciousness immediately after the impact.
Here’s video of the incident:
