Beechcraft Premier Jet Crashes In Oshkosh Wisconsin, Jack Roush Injured, Video
A private Beechcraft Premier Jet carrying NASCAR owner Jack Roush and a friend crashed in at Witman Regional Airport in Oshkosh Wisconsin.
Jack Roush who was flying the Beechcraft Jet and his passenger, a friend, Brenda Strickland of Plymouth, Mich. were able to walk away from the plane.
Both were transported to local hospitals, with the bloodied Roush in serious but stable condition and Strickland having non-life threatening injuries, according to the EAA, which is sponsoring its popular annual air show, AirVenture 2010.
The plane crash occurred around 6:15 pm Central Time on Tuesday.
"Dr. Kevin Wasco, the attending physician, says that Roush is in serious but stable condition," the team's statement said. "His injuries are not life threatening."
It is the second close call for Roush, who crashed a plane into a pond in Alabama in 2002 and nearly drowned before being rescued by an ex-Marine who lived nearby. Despite sustaining serious injuries, Roush continued flying.
Roush owns several aircraft, including a World War II-vintage P-51 Mustang.
