ROSEVILLE, Calif.– A local race car driver is in stable condition after crashing her car into a wall at All American Speedway in Roseville on Saturday night.
Family members said Lisa Young was still in the hospital, but she is improving and in good spirits. They said she is talking, laughing, and joking with family and other members of the racing community.
The Roseville Fire Department said Lisa crashed head-on into the wall at about 50 miles per hour.
Lisa's dad, Dain Lyon, said they're still trying to piece together exactly what happened but so far it appears that as the cars were racing and coming out of turn 2, another car may have bumped Lisa's car, spun her out and into the wall.
Lyon said he had just finished his own race before Lisa's accident. Lyon said Lisa had been racing for the last two years with him. It's a sport they both love and wanted to share together.
