About the Fatal IndyCar Accident

According to USA Today, Wilson was suffered fatal head injuries on Sunday when he was struck by a piece of debris during the Verizon IndyCar Series in Long Pond, Pennsylvania.

The incident occurred after another driver, Sage Karam, lost control of his vehicle and went into a spin and crashed. Wilson was unable to avoid the wreckage and the vehicle’s open cockpit left Wilson with little head protection beyond his helmet.

After Wilson was struck, his car veered into a wall. Emergency crews transported Wilson to Lehigh Valley Health Network in Allentown where he remained in a coma until his passing on Monday.

Wilson is the first driver to die in a U.S.-based racing serious since 2011. He is survived by his wife, Julia, and his two young daughters.
