INDIANAPOLIS (AP) In a story April 26, The Associated Press reported erroneously that organ donations from the late IndyCar driver Justin Wilson saved six lives. The Indiana Donor Network, citing updated information from Wilson's family, says five lives were saved.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Stefan Wilson partners with organ donation push for Indy 500
Stefan Wilson to attempt to run Indianapolis 500 for KV Racing Technology
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Stefan Wilson, the younger brother of late IndyCar driver Justin Wilson, will attempt to race in his first Indianapolis 500 this year.
Wilson will try to qualify for the 100th running of the Indy 500 in a car prepared by KV Racing Technology. Wilson will drive the No. 25 Driven2SaveLives Chevrolet in a partnership with Indiana Donor Network.
The Indiana Donor Network has a campaign to promote organ, tissue and eye donation and transplantation in honor of Justin Wilson, who was killed last August during an IndyCar race in Pennsylvania. He was struck in the head by a piece of debris from a crash ahead of him.
Justin Wilson was an organ donor and saved five lives through his gesture.
