Columbus, OH --- Pompano Park's all-time leading driver, Bruce Ranger, was injured in an accident on Monday night (May 12) at the south Florida oval.
During Monday's third race, Ranger was driving Diamond Dude and was unable to avoid a fallen Mini Shark and driver Bryce Fenn. That collision also involved driver David Ingraham and Forward Bliss.
Ranger was thrown to the track and transported to the hospital on Monday night. Pompano Park director of racing operations John Yinger told harnessracing.com that Ranger suffered a broken pelvis and lumbar vertebrae.
Track spokesman John Berry reported this morning that Ranger remains in the hospital, is sitting up a bit, but still in a lot of pain.
Fenn and Ingraham completed their driving assignments on Monday and the horses reportedly avoided serious injury.
