OSHKOSH, Wis. (WTAQ) - A famous NASCAR team owner is seriously hurt, after his plane skids off a runway at AirVenutre.
Jack Roush was scheduled to sign autographs Wednesday at the EAA fly-in, but after a landing mishap, the 68-year-old is in the hospital.
Witnesses say, around 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, Roush's Beechcraft Premiere business jet appeared to stall in the air and came in at an odd angle. Rescue workers were able to get Roush and his passenger, Brenda Strickland, out of the plane and took them to Theda Clark Medical Center.
On late Tuesday evening, Rousch was listed in critical condition, however Theda Clark reports his injuries are non-life-threatening. According to a news release from EAA, Strickland has non-life-threatening injuries, as well.
The NTSB and FAA are now investigating the incident. Roush was in a crash once before, in 2002, when his plane went into an Alabama lake.
