From what I hear he is now paralized from the chest down. That really sucks, he was so talented.
I didn't see that Joe, man that's terrible. In Pro football I heard that they have this drug that is a player has a suspected broken back they will give him a injection and may avoid him being paralized, I could be wrong.
When I was racing I had a few friends that had bad crashes and were paralized too. I always felt if I didn't stop I too might have been seriously hurt, I stoped racing MX after fracturing my right shoulder in 12 places, guess I was lucky. My last race was at Atco, they combined the Women Experts with the 30+ Experts, I got the holeshot and did the double out of the first turn and some guy crossed my line and we hit in the air ... ouch
