The coroner says that Peter Lenz sustained “traumatic injuries” on was pronounced dead several hours after he fell off his bike and was run over by another motorcycle.

Medical workers placed Lenz in a neck brace, put him on a stretcher and started chest compressions before taking him to the hospital.

It’s the first death at the track since 2003, when IndyCar driver Tony Renna was killed in practice.
