Carl Edwards had an emotional conversation Monday night with one of the victims of Sunday lightning storm that hit Pocono Raceway, killing one NASCAR fan and injuring nine others.
Edwards said he talked to a victim named Tony — he only knew his first name — who had minor injuries. He said that Tony was at the track with two friends — Brian Zimmerman, who was killed, and another friend who is in stable condition at a Pennsylvania hospital.
Zimmerman, a 41-year-old father of two, was standing by his vehicle when it was struck by lightning. He was pronounced dead at 6:11 p.m. ET, about 70 minutes after the lightning strike.
