Anatoly Arutunoff Injured in Hit and Run

Vintage car collector and racer Anatoly Arutunoff has been seriously injured in a traffic mishap while on his way to an SCCA meet in Las Vegas. He stopped on Interstate 40 to assist a driver that had run into a snow drift during a severe storm. Anatoly was pushing the car when he was hit by another car. According to an article in Autoweek, Anatoly lost a leg and severely injured the other.   

I had the pleasure of meeting him last spring at the Legends of Motorsports meet at Barber Motor Sports Park in Birmingham. Both he and his wife Karen are delightful people. 

Here's hoping he has a speedy recovery.
