Aric Almirola removed on stretcher after violent accident at Kansas NASCAR race

Aric Almirola needed to be cut from his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series auto and carried out on a stretcher following his involvement in a violent three-car crash on Lap 200 of the Go Bowling 400 on Saturday night at Kansas Speedway.

After Danica Patrick and Joey Logano collided with 68 laps to go, Almirola (in the 43 car) came careening toward them and smashed into Logano as flames flew everywhere.

Heroin epidemic pushing up hepatitis C infections in US
Comprehensive approaches are needed to combat the dual epidemics of opioid addiction and injection-related infectious diseases. Three-quarters of the 3.5 million Americans living with hepatitis C were born from 1945 to 1965.

Aric Almirola was swept into a lap-200 crash that was triggered by Joey Logano exploding a right front brake rotor. He immediately dropped the window net by the driver's side door to indicate he was conscious, but it took safety crews cutting off the roof to safely get him out. Patrick's vehicle spun into a fiery crash against the outside wall. I noticed it going in and tried to back off, but you're going 215 (mph) and I hooked Danica. Almirola, described by NASCAR officials as alert and awake, was placed on a backboard and taken to the infield care center, then airlifted to a hospital for further observation and evaluation. Almirola's No. 43 Ford spun into the aftermath of the crash, going briefly airborne as it made contact with both cars. "Just saying a lot of prayers for Aric [Almirola] right now". The vehicle just took a bit step sideways into the corner and I hooked Danica.

"Everything was fine and it just took a hard one".

ISIL lose control of Tabqa and its dam
They are backed by coalition air strikes, American special forces advisers and even a US Marines artillery battery. SDF deputy head Qahraman Hassan said: "In the beginning of the summer, we will storm and liberate (Raqa) city".

Almirola then plowed into Logano's vehicle as it skidded along the wall, the impact sending the rear of the No. 43 into the air. It seems like every time things are going better and something happens I get crashed or am in a crash.
