Franchitti injury update It seems the Scotsman had more broken bones from the flying wreck in Sunday's Houston race than originally thought. Reports are now that he suffered two broken vertebrae in his spine, a concussion, a broken right ankle and now they are saying he also has two cracked ribs.
The three-time Indianapolis 500 winner underwent surgery on his ankle Sunday night. He is expected to have another operation on the ankle but doctors said his spinal injuries would not require surgery.
