Ashley Judd rushed to Dario Franchitti's side after a crash in which his car went airborne during the Houston Grand Prix on Sunday (April 6). That wouldn't be so remarkable had the couple not announced earlier this year they are ending their marriage.
Despite letting the whole world know in January they were over as a couple after 12 years of marriage, Judd and Franchitti never filed for divorce. Now tweets from Juddfollowing Franchitti's wreck imply they are still -- or again -- very much together.
"Thank you for the prayers for @dariofranchitti I have only clothes on my back & the dogs but that's all that we need & we are on our way," Judd writes in Twitter. The message was followed the next day by another: "Amazed by the incredible outpouring of care & prayers. Thanks, everyone. Keeping our heads down here & doing what's in front of us to do."
On Tuesday, Judd retweeted a message from Dario to his fans that reads, "Thank you to everyone for all the well wishes. They mean a lot to me."
Franchitti was hospitalized following the wreck and reportedly suffered a concussion, two broken vertebrae and a broken ankle, for which he will undergo surgery. Several race spectators were also injured and hospitalized following the accident.
