That really sucks, he's almost a local boy to us where I live, followed him most of his career.
Get well Nicky!

Wow, that sucks! I met him at Mid-Ohio the year after he won his MotoGP title, and he was the nicest guy. I have a pic with him and my 2 kids, he was very happy to socialize with us. He was there to cheer Tommy on in AMA SBK.

Hope he recovers fully and soon! Also hope the motorist is held accountable if that was his fault.

Latest news is that he is in an induced coma which makes sense and is expected but the prognosis doesn't look good at the moment.

If he pulls through this could very well end his riding career.

Sh*t.

Current status is that he degraded a little. From what I gathered there will be no further news until early tomorrow. This really sucks.

He's in medically induced coma...
almost seems as though they're trying to keep him as stable as possible, for his family to arrive.

Not always. The coma is there to help reduce the swelling of his brain. If the swelling continues and gets any worst they would have to open his skull to let the inflammation continue. I would hope they are closely monitoring his vitals signs during this process. Once the swelling goes down then they can start dealing with the other injuries.

"Traumatic brain injury (TBI): A TBI is also called a head injury, brain injury, or acquired brain injury. In TBI, a sudden event damages the brain. Both the physical contact itself and the quick acceleration and deceleration of the head can cause the injury. The most common causes of TBI include falls, vehicle crashes, being hit with or crashing into an object, and assaults. The initial injury can cause brain tissue to swell. In addition, broken pieces of bone can rupture blood vessels in any part of the head. The body's response to the injury may also increase swelling. Too much swelling may prevent fluids from leaving the brain."
