IndyCar driver Justin Wilson dies after crash

150824100349-indycar-justin-wilson-crash-exlarge-169IndyCar driver Justin Wilson died Monday from injuries he suffered when struck by a part that careened off a crashed race car.

The nose cone of driver Sage Karam’s car flew off after he crashed Sunday at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pennsylvania, and struck Wilson in the head. Wilson’s No. 25 Andretti Autosport Honda then hit a wall before coming to rest on the track.

“Justin’s elite ability to drive a race car was matched by his unwavering kindness, character and humility, which is what made him one of the most respected members of the paddock,” said Mark Miles, CEO of the parent company of IndyCar. “He will be missed.”
