Poor lad and I wish him the best in his recovery. It was a freak horrible accident and took the emergency services over an hour to extract him from the wreck. I was at the craner curves with the family and the scene was terrible. A lot thought he had died. nooo And also far too many people filming it with their phones which seemed poor form nooo
