WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) — An employee of an upstate New York newspaper remains hospitalized with serious injuries after being hit by a race car that crashed off the course at Watkins Glen International.
The Star-Gazette of Elmira reports (http://stargaz.tt/19DVfzO ) that photographer and racing writer Ron Levanduski was photographing Sunday's New York State Governor's Cup event for historic Trans-Am cars when a Chevrolet Camaro driven by Bill Bryant of Fruitland Park, Fla., slammed into the area where Levanduski was working.
Witnesses say the impact knocked him 10 feet into the air and sent him flying into a nearby creek. Levanduski suffered broken ribs, a broken left arm and multiple scrapes and cuts. He's scheduled to undergo surgery Thursday at Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, Pa.
Bryan was treated at a hospital and released.
