Hidden Valley Crash Sends Three People To The Hospital September 13, 2020

CLEARFIELD, PA – In the closing laps of last night’s Street Stock feature at Hidden Valley Speedway, a crash happened to send three people to the hospital.

Chad Rougeux and Raymond Reynolds were battling hard for position when Reynolds 61R went out of control on the frontstretch and started sliding towards the infield. Reynolds car then hit the damp grass and picked up speed, before the car struck an embankment and utility pole that holds the turn two track lights. A corner flagman and a photographer were standing at that pole.

Reynolds would eventually extraicated from his car by firefighters, and transported to Penn Highlands Clearfield, while additional fire and EMS units were responding the scene.

Those injured at the pole are Kinser Mayhew, photographer, who suffered a broken collar bone. His dad, Kenny Mayhew was the corner flagman. He was flown to UPMC Altoona by Stat MedEvac Helicopter. His family released the following injuries today, and granted the speedway permission to release the information, along with the names.

Kenny has a fractured back, broken ribs, fluid in both lungs and a severely injured hand, which he will be having surgery on as this is being written. He is in Intensive Care at UPMC Altoona at this time. His son was treated and released from Penn Highlands Clearfield as was Reynolds.

Rescue Hose and Ladder EMS of Curwensville provides weekly stand by as does Hyde Fire Co., at the speedway. Together they worked well and immediately requested additional resources from fire and EMS.

Those at the scene include: Rescue Hose and Ladder EMS with 3 ambulances, Clearfield Medic 1 EMS, Hyde Fire Co. and Lawrence Township Fire Co. #1 and Stat MedEvac Helicopter, which landed on the front stretch.

Please keep those involved in your prayers, and we at the speedway will do our best to keep you updated to their conditions.
