While out on a ride in beautiful country and perfect weather I stopped for a drink of water, my phone rings, it's a buddy calling to say a friend and of mine was in a serious motorcycle crash and had been airlifted to Phoenix. No details yet. I'm avoiding the gossip on social media. It's an awful feeling.

Thanks for asking. He is stable, no brain damage but one eye lost and severe mouth and jaw injuries. No real news as to how it happened but impact with a guard rail caused the most severe injuries.

I finally caught up to the latest news about my friend who had a bad crash a couple of weeks ago. The news is very good, he's out of ICU and next week should be able to stand and take a few steps.

As is common in early reports of accidents much of what we heard initially was not accurate. He did not lose an eye (thank the Lord) , no brain damage, and, no serious lower extremity injury. The lower face and jaw took the worst hit along with a badly broken right hand.

Little is known about how the accident happened. He was riding alone on a country two lane. Shortly after the crash a car carrying a pastor and a trauma nurse arrived at the scene, summoned aid and likely saved his life.

Hospital staff told his wife that it's a miracle he survived.
