Wow, sad news, hopefully he'll make it. Life is precious. He's been through tons of stuff on the track and always has walked away. Now this...crazy.

There was a pic of the car that hit him in the USA Today article. The windshield and top were smashed. Only a couple of weeks ago, a famous bicycle racer was hit by a car in Italy. Those people are the worst drivers in the world.

It may be a pig, but it's a pig with a rocket in it's ass!

Latest update (3 1/2 hrs ago) confirms medically-induced coma and severe brain damage.

This video makes it horribly plain - the car has ended up on the wrong side of the road.
He must be in a hell of a state, his fighting spirit must now take over.

Latest word is that Nicky hayden has passed away. They likely kept him on life support until his family could get to Italy.

Crazy that throughout the years of racing even at his peak winning Moto GP he never any major accidents (that I can think of) that caused him to be critically injured to find out that while riding a bicycle? this happens...WTH

Haven't been able to confirm anything. Heard from another source that it is being called fake news.
