After the woman reported to FOX Sports that she was perfectly fine immediately following the incident, she visited the on-site medical offices who had no access to X-Ray machines, so she then checked herself into a local emergency room that night.
Several other outlets also covered the incident and reported that she was fine, but in her statement to FOX, she admitted after she "started bending around, it started hurting".
Now, NASCAR reps have made a statement regarding the incident and their plans for investigation.
According to Motorsport.com, the organization's Senior Vice President, Steve O'Donnell gave a statement on Sirius Radio.
“At the end of the day, it is a race,” O’Donnell said. “Thankfully, everyone was OK there. So we will not look at that in terms of Kyle Busch. But we will look at it to see if there’s anything we can do from a security perspective. We always reiterate to anyone that’s in the garage to be alert. This is a live race that’s going on. It was roped off. And thankfully, she was OK."
From this statement it appears that the hospital possibly cleared her of injury, but no information has been made available. If the hospital has not cleared her and she is still injured, it looks like NASCAR may not be aware of that.
Her husband, Kres Vandyke tweeted a photo of the incident on Saturday with a fairly aggressive caption.
"Thanks @KyleBusch for running over me today, could have at least check to make sure I was okay."
While many believe that Kyle Busch is at fault, NASCAR's statement reveals that they do not feel that he is to blame, and that it was just a security issue.
