Robert Wickens was part of a violent and terrifying crash during the IndyCar Series race at Pocono on Sunday.

Wickens was tended to by IndyCar safety personnel after the crash. IndyCar said Wickens was awake and alert when he was taken to the infield care center and was airlifted to a hospital in nearby Allentown, Pennsylvania, for evaluation. Two other drivers, Pietro Fittipaldi and James Hinchcliffe, underwent X-rays at the infield care center following the crash.

Wickens was on the inside of Ryan Hunter-Reay as the two entered turn 2 in the early laps of the race. The two made contact and Hunter-Reay’s car started to spin around. Wickens car smashed into the wall and climbed up into the catchfence. When the car got into the fence it then started spinning around like a top while in the air. The car then slid across the track and came to a halt on the inside of the track.

Other cars were collected in the scary scene. And look at how close Wickens’ car came to hitting Hunter-Reay’s head.

The race was delayed for a significant time because of repairs to the catchfence, which suffered major damage.
