Hunter-Reay released from hospital, in doubt for race

The Andretti Autosport driver was released from Lehigh Valley Hospital - Cedar Crest in Allentown on Saturday evening, having been taken there by road for checks after a heavy impact with the wall during qualifying.

But an IndyCar statement said Hunter-Reay, who suffered hip and knee injuries, was not yet cleared to drive and would be re-evaluated on Sunday morning.

"I hit my hip pretty bad as well as my knee, so the doctors thought it would be best to go in for further evaluation.

Hunter-Reay's accident was one of three big impacts at Pocono on Saturday, with Ed Carpenter crashing in practice and Helio Castroneves doing so shortly before Hunter-Reay in qualifying.

Carpenter, who missed qualifying, and Castroneves were both able to run in Saturday evening's final practice session in their repaired cars.
