Female Indy car driver Danica Patrick ran over her pitman Charles Buckman earlier today during practice for this Sunday’s Indy race.
According to Dr. Mike Ollinger, the director of Medical Affairs for the Indy Racing League, Buckman suffered a concussion along with scalp and facial lacerations. He was transported to Methodist Hospital for treatment where he is being held overnight.
â€œI really donâ€™t remember how it happened,” Buckman said. â€œAll I remember is I was talking with someone on Marco Andrettiâ€™s team and then everything is blank from that point.
â€œI will be OK and hopefully back to work in a day or two.”
No word if Danica was on her cell phone or doing her nails at the time of the accident. Let the female driver jokes commence!
Hopefully Mr. Buckman will make a quick and speedy recovery.
