According to Ron Buanno, one of his brother,s the impact of the tire knocked him out. He was then brought to Albany Medical Center by helicopter, where he currently is in critical condition.

According to a press release, Peter Buanno, David's other brother, said his sibling "suffered a broken neck and spine when the tire hit him."

Stock-car tires can come off because of lose lug nuts or a crash and weigh about 75 pounds.

According to a news release, a spokeswoman for the speedway said she didn't know why the tire flew off the car.

"Everything is still the same," Ron Buanno said about his brother's condition.

Ron explained how his brother is conscious, but can not talk due to a breathing tube in his mouth. He can still communicate by shaking his head up and down, back and forth.

"He's scheduled for an operation tomorrow afternoon to see if they can stabilize his neck," said Ron. "They're also going to see what else they can do for him."
