Sprint Cup Driver Injured In Pennsylvania Crash

ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Sprint Car driver Kramer Williamson is in surgery after crashing during a qualifying race at Lincoln Speedway.

Lincoln Speedway promoter Alan Kreitzer told The Associated Press that Williamson, the Palmyra, Pa., driver inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in 2008, collided with another car and then rolled over Saturday night.

A spokesman for the Eastern Adams Regional Police department in Abbottstown said officers were dispatched to the scene at around 8:15 p.m.

Kreitzer said one of Williamson's family members notified United Racing Company officials that he was in surgery at York Hospital Friday night. UCR officials then notified Kreitzer.

Administrators at York Hospital didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

Kreitzer said Williamson was on the fourth lap of a 10-lap qualifying round when the accident occurred. He said emergency workers responded immediately and Williamson was transported by helicopter to the hospital.
