Dreyer & Reinbold Racing has confirmed that Mike Conway has suffered a broken leg as a result of the enormous crash which took place at the end of Sunday's Indianapolis 500. The Englishman's car was thrown airborne and into catch fencing after making contact with the Andretti Autosport of Ryan Hunter-Reay.
Having led for parts of the race, due to an unconventional fuel strategy, a late stop for Conway saw him drop further down the field; however, as the likes of Hunter-Reay struggled to last the final laps with ever-decreasing levels of fuel on-board, the latter's car slowed suddenly in front of the former's.
The resultant contact saw Conway's car perform a complete 360-degree summersault before heading into the fencing, scattering debris all over the speedway before coming to rest on-track and inverted.
Amazingly, after being airlifted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, Conway's injuries were confirmed as a broken leg. He now continues his convalescence.
The horror moment can be viewed below:
