Racer on the mend after crash on Lake DePue

Posted by wlpo on July 31, 2014

The road to recovery will be a long one for a Texas man hurt in last weekend’s DePue boat races.

Sean McKean underwent surgery yesterday at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria. He was flown there Sunday after crashing in a hydroplane race. Doctors had to remove a prop blade from his foot and ankle area. He also suffered two severed arteries.

Another racer from New York was hurt in the same crash but has been treated and released.
