Medical helicopters respond
2 SERIOUSLY HURT AT RACE TRACK.
Unconfirmed reports on social media say 2 people were seriously hurt Saturday/early Sunday at the Laurens County Speedway.
A race car went into the stands - 6 other people were injured, the 2 seriously hurt were evacated by helicopter for treatment, a social media post says. Another post said there were 4 injuries, 2 very serious, but none immediately life-threatening. Another wreck happened on Farley Ave. - where a person was reportedly driving 70 mph in a 35 zone - and involved a vehicle hitting a tree, a separate social media posting says. That driver, too, was transported by helicopter, via trauma policies.
