Force In Hospital After Spectacular Crash

You saw them here in Memphis just last weekend. John Force and Kenny Bernstein, the two BIGGEST names in the National Hot Rod Association. Tonight Force lays in a hospital bed as the result of a unbelievable crash at the Texas MotorPlex.  Drag racing's biggest star, 14-time champion John Force was in the right lane, Bernstein on the left, racing their Funny cars some 315 miles per hour when Berstein gets loose and hit the median.  That sent some debris into Force 's machine causing him to lose control and the two collided. Force suffered two broken legs and a broken wrist that will require surgery tonight in Dallas. He was alert and conscious after the wreck and promptly air-lifted to Baylor University Medical Center. Miraculously, Bernstein was not injured.
