INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indianapolis 500 rookie Mike Conway has been
released from the hospital a day after sustaining a mild concussion
when he crashed during practice for the May 24 race.

An Indy Racing League spokesman says the 25-year-old driver from
England also bruised his lungs when he spun in the second turn at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and slammed hard into the wall Sunday.

Conway spent the night at Methodist Hospital and was released Monday afternoon.

He won't be cleared to drive again until he meets with track doctors on Friday.
