BLACK CREEK, B.C. – A man injured during a scary incident at Saratoga Speedway is in critical, but stable condition.
That’s according to a statement sent to the speedway by the victim’s sister, Jennifer Sedman.
“He (the victim) is at Vancouver General Hospital. He is currently in the ICU awaiting surgery. He is in critical, but stable condition,” she wrote.
“Just want to do a shout out to everyone and all the drivers. Thank you for your concern. It was just a fluke accident.”
According to witnesses, a car flipped off the race track and struck Sedman’s brother, who was at the venue setting up a fireworks show.
