James Hinchcliffe released from hospital

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) –  IndyCar driver James Hinchcliffe has been released from IU Health Methodist Hospital, according to IndyCar officials.

Hinchcliffe was released on May 26 after he had surgery on May 18 for an upper left thigh and pelvic injury suffered during a practice crash at IMS.

After his release from the hospital, Hinchcliffe was expected to continue recovery at home. IndyCar officials said Hinchcliffe should make a full recovery.

Hinchcliffe, 28, still can’t compete behind the wheel of an IndyCar. The racing organization’s medical staff members haven’t cleared him for competition.

Ryan Briscoe filled in for Hinchcliffe at the Indianapolis 500, and Conor Daly will fill in for Hinchcliffe this weekend in Detroit.
