Canadian IndyCar driver Robert Wickens suffers ‘orthopedic injuries’ in crash at Pocono

IndyCar said Wickens also suffered a pulmonary contusion.
"Part of the issue is we have five drivers in here in the aftermath of that crash", IndyCar Vice President of Communications Curt Cavin said.
Wickens' accident was eerily similar to the crash that claimed the life of British driver Dan Wheldon in 2011.
The 29-year-old was alert when medical workers attended to him before transporting him to the hospital in a helicopter.
The light impact was enough to push Hunter-Reay into a spin and hard into the wall, while Wickens's vehicle launched over Hunter-Reay's machine and spun viciously along the top of the SAFER barrier, tearing up the catchfence and leaving parts of sidepod and a wheel in the fence as it went.
Pocono Raceway president Ben May said about 80 feet (24.4m) of fence and a few posts were damaged in the wreck, repairs Bourdais described as "pretty lousy" before he got back in the auto. There wasn't another caution the rest of the way, and Rossi closed the gap on Dixon in the points race with a dominant win.
Wickens was on the inside of Ryan Hunter-Reay as the two entered turn 2 in the early laps of the race.
Hunter-Reay said he thought Wickens was no longer alongside him when they entered the corner. After a almost two-hour delay, the race resumed without another spate of aggressive driving - Graham Rahal tangled with Spencer Pigot as the field was brought to green - and ended without another caution.
Wickens was flown by helicopter to Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest, where IndyCar said he is being treated for injuries to his lower extremities, right arm and spine following the crash.
James Hinchcliffe, Takuma Sato and Pietro Fittipaldi were also involved in the crash and multiple drivers were injured.
Clinton and his wife, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, hailed her as "one of America's greatest national treasures ". The love she had for her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins knew no bounds", the statement said.
And one of the individuals - Hayden - told Vox's Alex Ward that revoking his security clearance won't stop him from speaking out. They have " politicized, and in some cases monetized, their public service and security clearances ", Sanders told reporters.
Khan's only challenger could be Shahbaz Sharif, but his Pakistan Muslim League party won only 92 seats in last month's elections. Imran's party Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) had invited the likes of Kapil Dev and Sunil Gavaskar along with Sidhu.
Trump said the drills were provocative and that dumping them would save the United States "a tremendous amount of money". The White House budget office earlier estimated to Congress the parade would cost between $10 million and $30 million.
The only way to shut him down, she said, is to "don't give him the oxygen" that comes from news stories, clicks, and likes. She once told PBS' "Frontline", "Every critic, every detractor will have to bow down under President Trump".
Qatar said it would provide "a host of economic projects, investments and deposits" worth $15 billion to support Turkey's economy. Turkey is calling for the U.S.to extradite a Pennsylvania-based Muslim cleric accused engineering a 2016 coup attempt .
He mentions taking action in courts, among other things, and says "people need to have their battle rifles ready". However, neither social media company states how many violations would lead to a permanent ban.
