CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The wife of NASCAR team owner Leonard Wood was killed, and he was among those injured in a crash on Interstate 85 shortly after the completion of a race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Betty Webb Wood, 64, of Stewart, Va., was killed about 10:50 p.m. Saturday night when a southbound car jumped the median and hit the northbound van in which she was traveling, the state Highway Patrol said. The two people in the car which hit the van also were killed. Authorities identified them as Felix Formelu, 35, and Sharon Wilkinson Formelu, 30, of Charlotte. Troopers said Leonard Wood's injuries were not life threatening. Four other members of the Wood family also were injured. Patrol Sgt. M.R. Yelton said the accident happened as Felix Formelu was attempting to pass a car while traveling south on I-85. Making the pass on the right, Formelu's vehicle clipped another as it moved back into the left lane, causing him to lose control. The car then crossed the median and hit the Wood van. Another car also traveling north then hit the van from behind. Two people in that car were slightly injured. A passenger in the car first clipped by the Formelu vehicle also was injured, troopers said. Yelton said he did not know the nature of all the injuries. ``A large number were transported to the hospital,'' he said. The accident happened about three miles south of China Grove, about a 15-minute drive from the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord. The Woods had been at the speedway for The Winston and Winston Open races. Leonard Wood owns the NASCAR Winston Cup car driven by Michael Waltrip.
