Jack Roush Injured In Plane Crash

Legendary NASCAR owner Jack Roush appears to have survived another plane crash. Roush was piloting a Raytheon/Beechcraft Premier Jet when the plane fell out of the sky around Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Reports are indicating that the plane was too low on its landing approach and a last second correction caused the nose to dip and come in contact with the ground. Roush and a female employee, Brenda Strickland, were both able to walk away from the wreck, but they did have a few injuries.

Roush was taken to a local hospital and was first listed in serious condition, but his status has been downgraded to critical. According to Roush Fenway Racing, the owner is expected to make a full recovery, even though he will have to go through surgery.

This makes the second time in 10 years that Roush has been involved in a plane crash. The first was back in 2002 when he landed a small aircraft into a pond in Alabama.
