Thoughts and prayers go out to Tanner as he recovers from injuries he received in an automobile accident in California early this morning. The race rig he was in, carrying his sprint car, rear ended a milk truck in a construction zone and caught fire.

It looks like you and me was typing this at the same.

There's a link on Hoseheads about the story.
Looks like he was pretty lucky.

CRA91, yeah it does look like we both had the same idea, no worries. By what I read and the pictures I've seen, Tanner was a lucky individual. Tri State Speedway posted on FB get well wishes and said he broke both legs and punctured a lung.

Dirtfan, thanks for sharing the link of the pictures.

Were they in a dually pickup or some type of toter, I couldn't tell in the pictures.

They were in a dually.
My bad, he was actually by himself the other person that was injured was in the milk truck.

Any word on how Tanner is doing?
What injuries did he suffer? I heard itís broken bones but some broken bones are harder to recover from than others...
