2009 Indianapolis 500 – Rafael Matos and Vitor Meira – HUGE Crash

Vitor Meira
IndyCar driver Vitor Meira could be out four months after breaking two vertebrae in his back during the Indianapolis 500. He will spend at least one more night in the hospital. IndyCar spokesman John Griffin said Meira could return to his Florida home by Saturday. A.J. Foyt’s team has hired former Champ Car points champion Paul Tracy to run in Milwaukee. Meira was injured Sunday when he and rookie Raphael Matos locked wheels late in the race. Meira’s car spun toward the wall and flipped on its side.
