OSHKOSH, Wis. (WTAQ) - A famous NASCAR team owner is seriously hurt, after his plane skids off a runway at EAA's AirVenutre.
Jack Roush was scheduled to sign autographs Wednesday at the EAA fly-in, but after a crash landing, the 68-year-old is in the hospital.
Witnesses say, around 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, Roush's Beechcraft Premiere 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. According to a news release from EAA, Strickland has non-life threatening injuries.
The NTSB and FAA are now investigating the incident. Officials say it could be weeks before the cause of the crash is known. The crash stopped take-off and landing operations at AirVenture as crews cleaned up the wreckage.
Roush was in a crash once before, in 2002, when his plane went into an Alabama lake.
