John Force has been airlifted to the hospital after a collision with Kenny Berstein at Dallas. Kenny crossed the centerline, collided with Force and then both cars hit the wall. Kenny walked away. Force was concious and talking while being transported to the helicopter.

There are no links to this story because the wife and I are listening to the radio broadcast.

Updates to follow.

Update 12:10 Pacific

Team spokesman Dave Densmore reported Force's injuries to the media. "He was asking to talk to Laurie, his wife, and Ashley and Robert Hight, so that was a good sign," Densmore said. "He is in a lot of pain, obviously. They can't take passengers on the helicopter so the family is off to the hospital in a car."

EDIT: Preliminary reports are that Force may have two broken legs and a broken hand but further evaluation will be needed. He was Life-flighted to Baylor Hospital in Dallas.
