FONDA - Relatives of a retired stock car driver say he is paralyzed and in critical condition after being hit by a tire that came off a racecar at the Fonda Speedway over the weekend.
The Daily Gazette reports David Buanno was visiting the pit area on Saturday when the tire hit him.
The paper quotes Buanno's brother, Peter, who says that David is paralyzed and in critical condition at Albany Medical Center.
A speedway spokesperson tells NewsChannel 13 it was a freak accident, but would not comment on whether they are investigating the cause.
