VIDEO: Wickens stands six months after horror crash

Thursday 21st February, 2019 - 6:53pm


IndyCar driver Robert Wickens has published a video showing himself standing with the support of his fiancé, six months on from his horror crash at Pocono.

Wickens raised himself out of a chair before being helped to a fully vertical position by partner Karli Woods.

According to his post, he has been able to do so for about a week but waited to surprise Woods.

The Canadian suffered a spate of injuries when his car flew into the catch fencing on Lap 7 of the Pocono 500 on August 19 (local time).

In October, he described his spinal cord injury as ‘incomplete’, meaning that his nerves may reconnect to his legs, and remained hopeful of walking again. comment policy reserves the right to remove comments that are off-topic, abusive and ban users who do not follow the comment policy.
