I received an email today about a friend and active member of the MTA community.

On Wed Vic was involved in a motorcycle accident. He was run over by a truck. Internal head injuries bleeding, broken ribs, sternum, broken pelvis, leg broken with open wounds bleeding, crushed ankle also open,Broken Ankle , Collapsed lung, bruised lung bruised heart. Waiting until stable to operate on leg to stop bleeding. Leaving now to catch next ferry back to Kelowna... I will update you all as I can...

Friday I got back from the hospital.. Vic is in stable but critical condition.. Lastnight his left lung had fully colasped and they had to do a emergancy chest tube.A bone fragment form his ribs pierced his lung... To drain his chest cavaty... he had another ct scan and it shows no change in the sweeling of his brain, whch is good because he is not getting worse... they operated on his legs .. they put a steel rod in his upper left leg.. and a rod in his lower left leg.. they are leaving his broken ankle alone for now.. on his right leg they had to put plates in his knee to hold it toghether... He is still in a comma and they dont know when he will come out of it for sure. they are guesiing a few weeks.. He was on full ventilation till this morning.. they have him breathing on his own but with help from the ventilatoir, The doc said they didnt think he was going to make it.. looks like he will be on a ventaltor for maybe another week.. be in Icu for a few weeks... I need to go to bed now so will do more info in the mornig there is stiill alot more to put down about his conditoion.. he is far from fully stable

Since some people may not read this entire thread, more info from Robpol86

Vic has been involved in a motorcycle accident and is in the hospital, He is in serious condition. I am the Father-In-Law. He is still in serious but stable condition has not woke up happened 3:00 on Wednesday. A truck ran a yellow-red light as Vic was making a left turn. It has been touch and go. We almost lost him several times.

Update (via email again)

They have started to giving Vic drugs to try and reduce the sweeling in his brain, Tge nerosurgion looked at his ct scan and said there is too much swelling so they need to reduce it... They started to give him some blood thinners. The doc says Vic is at a very high risk of getting blood clots from his leg and pelvis.. They have to be carefull as Vic is still bleeding in his leg and pelvis... So he could bleed out.. The doc said it is still a very rocky and unpredictable road for now.. and will be for quite a while.. But Vic stats are still stable so that is good.. I will update more real soon.. I am heading back up to the hospital soon..

Best wishes to Vic on getting better. :cry:

Vic has improved, he is back on the ventolator doing the breathing for him because it was too painfull for him. His lungs are starting to heal, they are draining less fluid then yesterday, they have put him on medication to reduce the brain swelling. but his vitals are steady and strong.

... Thats sad..... I used to play with him on SB server about a week ago.... :cry: He IS a good player.... I hope he gets well soon...

EDIT: This is the saddest moment on MTA (forget the crying part lol it was too exaggerated) for a player on MTA. I feel sorry of what will happen to him and what will be the effects.

This is the first time im actually almost crying for a player on MTA.

Not to be an ass or anything but why the hell would you cry over someone you've never met in person?

I said ALMOST. Not up to almost, but just feeling sorry, just thinking what might happen to him and what will be the effects, and its just sad. I'm just a sensitive person, no one quites understand me lol.

I never met the Jews alive during WW2 but they sure as hell can bring a tear to my eye.

They were treated so bad, and died from suffering, i felt so sorry for them. I would think of it, but i'm going to have water in my eyes if i think of it too much :cry:
