INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - IndyCar driver Justin Wilson has been released from the hospital and has returned to his home in Longmont, Colo., IndyCar officials announced Tuesday.

Wilson was injured Saturday night in the season finale at Fontana, Calif., when his car spun coming out of the second turn. It left a trail of smoke, which led to a multi-car crash. The English driver was transported and admitted to nearby Arrowhead Regional Medical Center. IndyCar's medical director Dr. Michael Olinger diagnosed Wilson with non-operable pelvic fractures and a bruised lung.

Wilson spent the next two nights in the hospital before his release Monday.

Dale Coyne Racing, Wilson's team, and IndyCar officials have not said how long it will take Wilson to recover.

Wilson has seven career open-wheel wins, three in the IndyCar Series.
