CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick says his seat came loose in the Oct. 31 plane crash that left him with four broken ribs and a broken shoulder.
The Gulfstream G150 had brake problems upon landing at the Key West Airport in Florida. The private plane ran off the runway.
Hendrick said Monday he was wearing his seat belt, but the seat itself came loose and he hit the bulkhead. He also said his chest and head hit the seat in front of him.
Hendrick also suffered a concussion and was hospitalized for a week in North Carolina. His wife, Linda, sustained minor cuts and bruises in the crash. The two pilots were not injured.
The plane was co-owned by Hendrick and five-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson.
