HOUSTON -- Three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti will remain in Houston for the next few days as he recovers from a frightening crash during the last lap of the Houston Grand Prix over the weekend.
Franchitti's car went airborne into the fence during Sunday's race. He broke his right ankle, fractured two vertebrae in his spine and received a concussion. He underwent surgery on the ankle Sunday night and was hospitalized.
Target Chip Ganassi Racing said Monday that Franchitti "will remain in Houston for a few days" and then be taken to Indianapolis for further evaluation.
Franchitti thanked his fans for their support.
The wreck also injured an IndyCar official and 13 fans, including two who were taken to a hospital for treatment.
