Last injured race fan released from hospital

All nine race fans injured by lightning strikes in the parking lot at Pocono Raceway have been released from local hospitals, track officials say.

One bolt hit the grandstand parking area around 5 p.m. last Sunday, killing 41-year-old Brian Zimmerman of nearby Moosic, who died as he stood near his car with the back hatch open. Eight others were injured and a second strike came around 6:35 p.m., sending a ninth person to a hospital. All had various degrees of injuries.

Private funeral services for Zimmerman will be held Saturday in Old Forge, Pa.
