PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Harness racing driver Anthony Coletta's family today issued the following statement:
"Anthony is in the race of his life and it is a race he is - like all of his races - out to win. We want the racing world to know how grateful we are for your thoughts and prayers. And we are overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support for our son from across the U.S., Canada, and as far away as New Zealand. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
Attorneys from Saltz, Mongeluzzi, Barrett, & Bendesky, P.C., issued the statement on behalf of the family that it represents in the aftermath of the November 17, 2013 Harrah's Race Track accident in which Mr. Coletta was seriously injured. The 31-year-old driver suffered numerous fractures, brain and skull injuries as a result of being thrown from his sulky and then trampled. Following several surgeries, he is receiving around-the-clock care at a rehabilitation hospital in New Jersey where family members are continuously by his side.
