Carson Hocevar, who drives the No. 42 Premier Security Solutions Chevrolet, was involved in a horrific crash that took place at the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Toyota 200 at WWT Raceway Saturday night.

Luckily, the 19-year-old did survive and was rushed to the hospital where he appears to be in stable condition.

NASCAR later would release a statement about Hocevar’s condition.

“Hocevar exited the wreck and was helped to the ambulance on a stretcher. He appeared to be alert and signaled to the crowd with a thumbs-up, and NASCAR officials said he would be evaluated at a local hospital. The team later indicated that his right lower extremity was being examined.”

Hocevar could be heard over his radio saying “Help… Can somebody f*cking help me”

Some NASCAR fans and media were not thrilled at how long it took officials to come to check on the driver who was in obvious pain after his accident.

No one knows why it took so long, but it’s scary to think what could have potentially happened to the driver if no one came to his aid quickly, thankfully, his injuries don’t appear to be life-threatening, but that still doesn’t explain nor excuse officials for not getting to the accident quicker.

Hocevar also crashed at Charlotte last week too.
