Ashley Judd rushed to husband Dario Franchitti’s side after the race car driver was hurt in a scary crash at the Houston Grand Prix on Sunday.

More than a dozen spectators and a race official were also injured in the accident, after Franchitti’s car went airborne into a catch fence, sending debris flying into the stands.

The driver was taken to Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, where he was treated for a spinal fracture, broken ankle, and concussion.

Judd tweeted, “Thank you for the prayers for @dariofranchitti I have only clothes on my back & the dogs but that’s all that we need & we are on our way.”

On Monday, she wrote, “Amazed by the incredible outpouring of care & prayers. Thanks, everyone. Keeping our heads down here & doing what’s in front of us to do.”

Judd and Franchitti announced their plans to split last January, but it appears their status may have changed in the ensuing months.
