CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick has been hospitalized to treat injuries he suffered when his private plane ran off the runway during a landing.
Hendrick Motorsports says an evaluation Tuesday in Charlotte showed Hendrick has four broken ribs and a broken shoulder. He was admitted to a local hospital to better manage his pain, and is expected to be released by the end of the week.
Hendrick, his wife and two pilots were on the Gulfstream G150 that had brake issues upon landing Monday night at Key West International Airport. The plane is co-owned by Jimmie Johnson and normally shuttles the five-time defending NASCAR champion and his family to and from races.
Linda Hendrick sustained minor cuts and bruises. The two pilots were not injured.
The plane apparently skidded off the 4,800-foot runway and came to a stop along a 600-foot unpaved safety area that had been added in May.
