SONOMA, Calif. (AP) - IndyCar driver Nelson Philippe has been released from the hospital after sustaining multiple injuries in a crash during practice for last weekend's Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma.

He has returned home to Miami.

Philippe, of Conquest Racing, sustained a concussion along with an open fracture to his left foot that required surgery. He also had a hairline fracture of his right fibula and was fitted for a brace.

Philippe crashed into Will Power on Saturday morning at Infineon
Raceway. Power was still in the hospital. He has at least two compression fractures in his lower back and also suffered a concussion. Power's back has been fitted for a brace, and he is expected to be transported to Indianapolis for further treatment in the next few days.
