i'm so sorry to hear about an event like this. my prayers are with you and your wife for a full and speedy recovery for her.

and thanks for posting the info on how to remove a helmet in an emergency situation. i would never have thought about there being a correct way to do so.

anything we can do!

I know I am not just speaking for myself. If there is anything we can do to help, just post it. Stuck at the hospital, need a decent meal. Or someone to sit with you or anything just post it.
I can't imagine what you are going through. If we can help, at all , let us know.

In my 21 years of riding and year and a half as a ff/first responder I've seen a few riders die and seen countless others get seriously injured. I used to live somewhere that riders crash at ALL the time...

General rule of thumb is DO NOT remove the helmet. There could be neck or spinal cord injuries that the fallen rider may or may not be able to tell. Moving the head around could aggrevate these injuries and do more damage. As stated.. Only if absolutely necessary should the helmet be removed. Its best to wait until EMS staff arrive and let them remove it. the method you mentioned looks right. Just be sure that the neck and head are properly supported.. I can't stress how important that is.

Another thing to remember is to stay calm. You could be the other riders only source of comfort in the event of an accident so if you're freakin out, its not going to do them any good.


I hope your wife has a speedy recovery and its a good thing the injuries she sustained weren't more serious

looking for a trackbike!!








Its a great feeling to have found a riding community that helps each other out in times like this without a second thought. All of these people offering meals/ pet sitting, etc is great. I think we all know when sitting by the computer that you DO NOT remove a helmet unless absolutely necessary. But, I think what he was trying to say is do you really think you will make the right decision at an accident scene when there are people screamin/crying, blood everywhere, things on fire, etc.

I think that the OP did an excellent job considering the situation.

I had a similar situation about a year ago. Traveling down a rural highway after a hunting trip, I look up for a split second to see an oncoming suv doing barrel rolls after hitting a culvert doing about 80. We slammed on our brakes to avoid the accident and were in complete shock. The suv was completely destroyed and smoking. After panic braking, we ended up about 80 ft from the vehicle. After a few seconds we look directly out of our window to see a small body laying in the middle of the highway. It was a 5 year old that had been ejected when the car was flipping and landed next to our vehicle. We jumped out and ran to her. We knew she was in very bad shape considering all of the blood, multiple broken bones that had punctured the skin, and skull looked like it was hit with a bat. Since it had just happened, cars were still flying by us/ swerving to avoid us. We knew that she most likely had a broken back and or neck, but we also knew that if we stayed there much longer we would all be run over. We made the decision to move her to the side of the highway. That one tore me up for a while because the parents came out with just multiple gashes/ blood loss and she was half dead. All they had to do was buckle her up.

I guess what im trying to say is that it is very very difficult to make the right decision in the heat of the moment. Practicing and thinking about what you would do in different situations will help alot

I can't thank you guys enough.....


I'm in Tyler, and I have friends and family helping......but they're supposed to.

People like you help restore a bit of my faith in humanity after having some of it stolen yesterday looking at that POS smirk at me without remorse or a care in the world.

I hope this will just become a distant memory for the two of you.

Get all the love to your wife, do not waste emotions thinking on the driver reactions.
