Dan Wheldon dead at 33 after massive Las Vegas Indy 300 wreck
The fiery wreck occurred early Sunday. After his car flew over another car on his 13th lap, Wheldon was transported by helicopter to the nearest hospital. Other drivers were notified of his death in a meeting two hours after the crash.
The remainder of the race has been canceled. The drivers will honor him with a five-lap salute, while his number, 98, is shown at the top of the race scoreboard.
