Speedway driver crashes

AN Echuca speedcar driver remained in Warrnambool Base Hospital last night after a high-speed crash at Allansford’s Premier Speedway.

Doctors have cleared Travis Mills of any major damage after he rode a wheel and crashed into the turn one catchment fence during a heat race on Saturday.

The track crash crew extracted Mills from his car before paramedics took him to hospital, where he spent Saturday and Sunday nights.

A statement on the Mills Motorsport Facebook page said doctors were concerned Mills had suffered bruised lungs, but cleared him of any broken bones

.The statement praised the work of crash crew members and paramedics who rushed to his aid and staff at Warrnambool Base Hospital.

“I cannot thank the crash crew and the staff at Premier Speedway enough, along with the Victorian Ambulance service and all the staff at the hospital,” it said.

Premier Speedway general manager David Mills said the design of Mills’ car and safety systems in place at the track worked as they should have.
