Andy Meyrick and Juergen Krebs have both sustained fractures in a serious accident that red-flagged the Total 24 Hours of Spa overnight.

Meyrick, in the No. 31 Team Parker Racing Bentley Continental GT3, and Krebs, driving Attempto Racing’s No. 666 Lamborghini Huracan GT3, collided at Raidillon at around 3 a.m. local time.

It resulted in a stoppage of more than an hour while both drivers were extracted from their cars before being transported to the circuit medical center and onto a hospital.

While not having suffered life-threatening injuries, both drivers are currently in intensive care units due to the “high speed nature” of the accident but were reported to be awake and alert immediately following the collision.

The extent of the drivers’ fractures, however, are unclear.

Based on trackside photos, which indicate extensive front-end damage to both cars, Meyrick and Krebs could be facing injuries to their lower extremities.

“SRO Motorsports Group would like to thank the circuit medical staff and track marshals for their assistance, while also wishing both drivers a full and speedy recovery,” a statement from the SRO read.

Alexander Sims currently leads the race for ROWE Racing with less than eight hours remaining.
