Richie Crampton, Dominick Lagana, and Jake Sanders were injured Sunday night when the wagon went off the road and struck a utility pole near Brownsburg, Indiana.
According to Police reports and local news outlets, Lagana was driving a turbocharged LS-powered 1957 Chevrolet station wagon built by Crampton for a Drag Week competition when it left the road and struck a power pole.
Lagana, the driver at the time, is said to have suffered life-threatening injuries. Crampton and Sanders appear to have lesser injuries according to early reports by the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Department. The cause of the accident is still under investigation, but “speed is believed to be a factor”.
It has been reported that Crampton was ejected from the car and suffered a broken hip.
Lagana is believed to be on a ventilator and remains in a critical condition.
The third passenger, Jake Sanders, was also injured and was being treated in a nearby hospital.
