A plane owned by Jimmie Johnson Racing skidded off a runway in Key West Monday night, sending four occupants to the hospital.
The Gulfstream 150 business jet (N480JJ), which is registered to Johnson’s racing team out of Charlotte, North Carolina, was landing at Key West International Airport when the pilots radioed a problem with the brakes, according to a CBS Miami report. It was not immediately clear where the flight had originated or if the five-time NASCAR champion was on board.
Two patients had minor injuries and the others were hospitalized as a precaution.
