    James Hinchcliffe is in stable condition after he wrecked while practicing for the Indianapolis 500. Hinchcliffe's car collided with the wall at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and flipped before coming to rest.

    Here's video of the wreck:

    Hinchcliffe was transported to Methodist Hospital, where he underwent surgery to remove a piece of debris from his left thigh.

    Hinchcliffe's left thigh was pierced by a piece of equipment from the car, causing "massive bleeding," according to the Associated Press, requiring surgery.

    According to Curt Cavin of the Indianapolis Star, Hinchcliffe is in stable condition.

    On-board cameras show Hinchcliffe's right-front wheel lifting shortly before impact. A Honda spokesperson said the right-front suspension broke.

    Hinchcliffe is the fourth driver to get airborne in a wreck at this year's Indy practices. Helio Castroneves, Josef Newgarden and Ed Carpenter have all wrecked within the past few days.
