Read here: http://www.worldsbk.com/. No updates have been issued since the accident. Hit by some idiot in a Peugeot. Can also Google and read more.

Terrible, both the car and the bike have heavy damage.

Thinking along the lines of Michael Schumacher, Nicky is done. With his career and probably life in general. I wish he had been on the top of the charts when this happened.

Sounds like the fake news has run amuck about Nicky's demise. Hard to know what to believe but, this sounds factual coming from his father.

Cool Kid I hope he survives. frown
