IndyCar confirms no injuries from fence-clearing wheel at Indy

#6: Felix Rosenqvist, Arrow McLaren Chevrolet

IndyCar has confirmed that there was no serious injuries caused by the loose wheel from Kyle Kirkwood’s car that cleared the Turn 2 fence during Sunday’s Indianapolis 500.

Kirkwood’s No. 27 Andretti Autosport Honda was hit by the crashing No. 6 Arrow McLaren Chevrolet of Felix Rosenqvist as it rebounded off the Turn 2 wall. The cars collided in a manner that severed the tether that is designed to keep wheels from becoming detached, and Kirkwood’s left rear broke free and flew over the high fence lining the wall.
