Not sure if any of you follow racing?  I'm a huge F1 nut since a boy.  

Justin Wilson - former Jaguar and Minardi F1 driver, is in a coma after being hit by debris during an Indycar race in Pocono yesterday, August 23rd.  He was not involved in the crash, but the resulting debris hit him in the helmet.  

This marks the 3rd coma in under 2 years of 3 drivers past and current.  Michael Schumacher was involved in a skiing accident in December 2013, which has left him in a vegetative state since awakening from his 7 month coma.  Jules Bianchi passed away last month after striking a recovery vehicle during a race in Suzuka last October.  He did not awaken from his coma.  

Now Justin is fighting for his life in that very same situation.

A very likable man, I had a chance to speak with him in Spa back in 2000 something when he was in his early 20's.  I do hope he can pull through and return to a normal life.

Godspeed.

Alas, Justin passed away over night.

Listening to those who knew n loved him this morning, they paint a picture of a good family man who was always thinking of others.

His brother, also a professional racer spoke glowingly pointing out, even after his death he is thinking of others, donating his organs to those who may need them to continue life.

RIP.
