Wendy Venturini injured in accident

Wendy Venturini Egert, who calls NASCAR races as a booth announcer and pit reporter for Performance Racing Network, is recovering at Marin General Hospital in Greenbrae, Ca. after being struck by a vehicle early Saturday morning.

According to police, the accident is still under investigation but Egert is awake and has been speaking with officers. She is currently in the emergency room at Marin General, said a corporal with the Novato Police Department. The corporal said police had been "in contact" with the driver but stopped short of saying whether that person had been charged or cited.

Egert, who's best known by her maiden name, Wendy Venturini, is part of the iconic Venturini racing family. She is in California for the weekend's events at Sonoma Raceway and is an avid runner who exercises daily.
