Sources have reported that Sprint Cup car owner Jack Roush has been involved in an airplane crash during his approach at the Oshkosh, Wisconsin fly-in. 

Roush was reportedly trying to land his Raytheon Beechcraft Premier 390 and experienced a hard landing. The plane broke in two upon impact.

Jack Roush and passenger Brenda Strickland were taken to a local hospital and are said to be doing OK. 

This is the second time Jack Roush, owner of Roush-Fenway Racing, has been involved in a small aircraft accident.

On April 20th, 2002, Roush almost died when the Aircam he was piloting went down in Troy, Alabama. Roush was underwater, upside down, and unconscious, when retired Marine Larry Hicks pulled him to safety. Hicks was able to save Roush by administering emergency CPR. 

Update: According to RoushFenway.com, "Dr. Kevin Wasco, the attending physician, says that Roush is in serious but stable condition. His injuries are not life threatening."
