No matter how amicably or bitterly actress Ashley Judd and estranged husband Dario Franchitti split in January, it's clear that she still cares for him deeply. She rushed to his side on October 6 after he broke his back in a horrific race car crash, E! Online reports.
The accident took place during the last lap of the Grand Prix of Houston, when another car struck Dario's, sending it spiraling into a fence. Debris from the wreck flew into the stands, injuring 13 spectators, 3 of whom were hospitalized but listed in "good" condition.
Dario, meanwhile, suffered a concussion, cracked two ribs, and fractured his ankle and two of his vertebrae.
E! Online reports that Ashley met him at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, where he underwent ankle surgery.
"Thank you for the prayers for @dariofranchitti," Ashley tweeted that evening. "I have only clothes on my back & the dogs but that's all that we need & we are on our way."
The 45-year-old actress is most famous for crime thrillers like Kiss the Girls, Double Jeopardy, and High Crimes — as well as the one-season wonder that was ABC's Missing — but she's also set to star in the eagerly-anticipated YA adaptation Divergent next year.
Here's wishing Dario a swift recovery!Source: E! Online
