Driver Philippe out of hospital

IndyCar driver Nelson Philippe of France has been released from hospital after sustaining multiple injuries in a crash during practice for last weekend's Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma.
He has returned to his Miami home.
Philippe, of Conquest Racing, sustained a concussion along with an open fracture to his left foot that required surgery. He also had a hairline fracture of his right fibula and was fitted for a brace.
Philippe crashed into Australian driver Will Power on Saturday at Infineon Raceway. Power was still in the hospital. He has at least two compression fractures in his lower back and a concussion. Power's back has been fitted for a brace, and he is expected to be transported to Indianapolis for further treatment in the next few days.
