NASCAR reporter Wendy Venturini suffered a fractured skull and a concussion after being hit by a car while jogging Saturday.

Venturini is reportedly doing OK, but will need to spend a few days in the hospital. She was slated to work Sunday’s race at Sonoma Raceway for the Performance Racing Network.

President and general manager of PRN, Doug Rice, spoke to Venturini at the hospital and said she was “going to be fine,” according to USA Today.

“I talked to her a couple of times today, and she’s doing OK,” Rice said. “The doctor told her she’d be in the hospital for a couple of days and be out of commission for a while, but she’s going to be fine.”

PRN has asked fans to send Venturini positive thoughts so that she can make a quick recovery.
