Dreyer & Reinbold driver Mike Conway has been found to have sustained a broken left leg in his horrific crash on the final lap of the Indianapolis 500.
Conway had been racing with Andretti Autosport's Ryan Hunter-Reay when the two cars became entangled, resulting in Conway's Dallara-Honda being launched into the air. It hit the fencing and was torn in half, with the cockpit section landing upside down on the racetrack, after passing just over Hunter-Reay's car.
Conway was flown straight to Indianapolis' Methodist Hospital, with the IndyCar safety team fearing delays in traffic if he was transported by road just as the race was finishing.
Prior to the incident, Conway had looked set for a top-10 finish, having briefly led while trying an alternate fuel strategy.
Two male spectators sitting in the North Vista grandstands were treated for minor injuries at the Speedway's Clarian Emergency Medical Center and released after being struck by debris during the crash between Conway and Hunter-Reay on the final lap of the race. One spectator received stitches for a cut in the forehead. Another spectator suffered a head laceration that required no stitches.
