May 19, 1986| Associated Press

WESTBURY, N.Y. — Harness driver David Dunckley remained in a coma in critical condition late Sunday night, two days after he was thrown from his sulky in a four-horse pileup at Roosevelt Raceway, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Dunckley was taken to Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola after the fourth-race accident. After a CAT scan, Dunckley, 47, was operated on by neurosurgeons at 5 a.m. for massive head injuries, said the spokeswoman.

None of the horses or other drivers, including Herve Filion behind Heart of Stone or Mike LaChance behind Salerno Lobell, were injured, Cowen said.
