Franchitti also fractured his right ankle and suffered a concussion.
The four-time IndyCar champion was driven to Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, where he had surgery to repair his ankle. Fracnhitti's wife, actress Ashley Judd, immediately rushed to her husband's side. "Thank you for the prayers for @dariofranchitti I have only clothes on my back & the dogs but that's all that we need & we are on our way," the Divergent star tweeted.
