Nicky Hayden in Extremely Critical Condition

Just saw this in the news:

Nicky Hayden, former MotoGP champion, has 'serious cerebral damage' after crash

American remains in intensive care in Italian hospital
35-year-old was struck by car while training on bicycle

Former MotoGP world champion Nicky Hayden remains in intensive care in an Italian hospital after being injured in a cycling accident on Wednesday.

The 35-year-old American, who currently races for the Red Bull Honda World Superbike team, was hurt while on a training exercise along the Rimini coastline when his bicycle was in collision with a car. He had competed in the Superbike World Championship races at Imola last weekend.

Hayden, from Owensboro, Kentucky, was treated at the scene before being taken to a nearby hospital. He was later transferred to the Bufalini hospital in Cesena. He suffered head and chest injuries in the accident and has been placed in an induced coma, according to reports. His mother, Rose, and brother Tommy have joined his fiancee Jackie at his hospital bedside.

“[Hayden] is still in the intensive care unit ... [and] has suffered a serious polytrauma with subsequent serious cerebral damage,” read a statement from the hospital. “The prognosis remains reserved.”

Hayden’s team issued a statement on Thursday, which read: “Nicky Hayden was involved in an incident while cycling near Rimini, Italy yesterday afternoon.

“Following the incident, Nicky was treated on site by medical staff and then taken by ambulance to a hospital near Rimini for immediate treatment. Once Nicky’s condition was stabilised, he was transferred to Maurizio Bufalini hospital in Cesena and remains in the hospital’s intensive care unit. Members of Nicky’s team and his fiancee are with him in the hospital.

“We would like to thank everyone for their kind wishes and messages of support and the assistance of emergency and medical services. Once an official statement regarding Nicky’s condition is released by the hospital or Nicky’s family, a further update from the team will be issued.”
