BERWICK, Pa. (AP) A man struck by lightning at last weekend's NASCAR race in Pennsylvania said he saw a brilliant flash of white and sparks flying off his hand before losing consciousness.
Travis Rauch, 35, one of 10 lightning-strike victims at Pocono Raceway on Sunday, said he was struck while helping a fellow race fan whose canopy was blowing away outside the track. One of the bolts killed a 41-year-old man as severe storms moved into the area and cut short the Pennsylvania 400.
Rauch suffered a burn on his right hand. He was released from the hospital on Monday.
