Hendricks Says Private Jet’s Seat Broke Loose in Accident
Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports, yesterday said he sustained four broken ribs, a broken clavicle and a concussion when his seat broke loose during a runway-departure accident on October 31.

Nine others aboard, including two pilots, suffered minor cuts and bruises. An NTSB investigation is ongoing.
