“There are injuries. Possible surgery,” Roush Fenway Racing president Geoff Smith said in a text message to The Associated Press. “But he left the plane.”
Smith confirmed that the plane belonged to Roush, and he was flying. Smith said Roush injuries included facial lacerations.
Roush, an aviation enthusiast, was attending the annual AirVenture Experimental Aircraft Association in Oshkosh, Wisconsin this week.
In a statement on the CEA website, authorities said a Beechcraft Premier business registered in Roush Fenway Racing, LLC was involved in a landing accident at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.
The accident occurred at about 6:15 pm CDT, the statement said.
According to the CEA, the National Transportation Safety Board and the Department of Winnebago County Sheriff confirmed that two occupants on board, Strickland and Brenda Roush of Plymouth, Michigan Strickland is a friend of Roush.
“Everyone came out of the aircraft following the accident,” the statement said. “Both were transported to local hospitals with Roush in serious but stable and Strickland with injuries not life threatening. The NTSB is leading the investigation into the accident.”
According to a statement from the team, Roush landed his plane when the accident occurred.
