By

Although the full extent of Robert Wickens’ injuries have yet to be confirmed, he is being treated for injuries “to his lower extremities, right arm and spine,” according to a statement from IndyCar.

MRIs to learn whether suspected fractures or breaks to Wickens’ ankles, arm, and vertebrae are planned at Lehigh Valley Hospital – Cedar Crest for the Schmidt Peterson Motorsports driver who crashed after making contact with Andretti Autosport’s Ryan Hunter-Reay on Sunday at the Pocono IndyCar event.

Surgery is anticipated once the injuries are confirmed. Wickens also suffered a pulmonary contusion in the crash that destroyed his No. 6 Honda.
