The race was red-flagged due to substantial damage to the catchfencing in the crash, and is yet to resume.

The top 10 drivers remain mathematically alive for the championship heading to the next race, the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 in Madison, Illinois next weekend.

Alexander Rossi is scored in the lead, followed by Will Power, Josef Newgarden, Simon Pagenaud, Zach Veach, Sebastien Bourdais, Scott Dixon, Ed Jones, Ed Carpenter and Marco Andretti.

Fittipaldi appeared uninjured, as did Hunter-Reay and Sato. "I saw all the smoke ahead".

"I'm okay, just thinking about Robert", Hunter-Reay told NBCSN. But, that's all that he left him. Once Wickens' vehicle soared over Hunter-Reay's and hit the fence, it spun round and round like a top.

"Once we got to [turn] two, he was at my corner, at best".

"It means a lot to win any race for Andretti Autosport", Rossi said. "It's one of those corners where if you're not up alongside ..." "Nice to get some points out of it". I left a lane. I gotta look at it again. When I saw I was going to hit Hinch head on I had to slam the breaks and get low.

As Wickens went around he went airborne of the nose of Hunter-Reay. He's close with Wickens as the two raced each other as youngsters in Toronto. But, the wheels were no longer attached to the cokpit. Several race cars were collected in the crash. Hinchcliffe was cleared and released from the medical centre. We're just thinking about Robert.

Wickens has been transported to Leah High Valley Cedar Crest Hospital via helicopter.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Bubba Wallace had a scary crash into the same wall when his breaks went out during the Gander Outdoor 400 on July 29.

As officials collected the race auto they covered the vehicle with a tarp. "Praying for you @robertwickens, I hope you're ok". These are the dangers we face, but we always hate to see it. The caution flag waved nearly immediately when Graham Rahal ran into the back of Spencer Pigot as they reached the front straight.

"Praying for @robertwickens & the rest of the drivers involved at Pocono", Stefan Wilson tweeted. "It's at moments like this that the wonderful AMR @IndyCar safety team come into their own. It would be super to have him in one of our cars", Penske said.

The win by Rossi, however, took second status to a horrific crash during Lap 7 that sent driver Robert Wickens to the hospital.

IndyCar later issued a statement advising that Wickens was "awake and alert" following the accident, which also involved three other drivers who couldn't avoid the flying debris.
