(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Izod IndyCar Series driver Mike Conway underwent surgery to repair fractures to his lower left leg on Sunday night.

Conway was injured in a scary accident with Ryan Hunter-Reay at the end of Sunday's Indianapolis 500.

Indy Racing League Director of Medical Services Doctor Michael Olinger says that Conway also suffered a soft tissue injury to his lower left leg and a compression fracture of one of his thoracic vertebrae.

He will need to wear a back brace for that injury for three months which will prevent him from racing.

Hunter-Reay was scheduled to have surgery Monday on his left thumb.

He will be fitted with a carbon fiber splint which will allow him to drive this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway.
