Tulsa folks - Phil McDonald in an accident.

Just in case anyone on here knows Phil (former road racer and current MSF instructor). If you have taken the MSF course recently Phil may have been one of the instructors. Just goes to show this type of thing can happen to anyone. Here's a link to the story.

Be safe out there folks.

Updated info on Phil.

Phil McDonald Update

Copyright 2003, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc.

Former racer Phil McDonald remains heavily sedated in intensive care at St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma, while being treated for injuries suffered in a streetbike crash over the weekend.

According to his father, Norm, Phil McDonald suffered compound fractures of both arms and extensive left shoulder damage, including torn ligaments and nerves. Norm McDonald said that a bystander applying a tourniquet to Phil's left arm saved his life, and that he needed seven pints of blood when he reached the hospital. Phil McDonald also suffered a broken right foot.

According to Norm McDonald, a truck pulled out of a parking lot, hitting Phil McDonald and sending him into the center median, which had an 8-inch curb. The impact with the curb sent Phil McDonald airborne, and he flew into a highway sign, bending the sign pole flat and continuing on another 150 feet.

McDonald thanked Roadracing World readers for their calls and e-mails. "When you put that on Roadracingworld.com (yesterday), we started getting calls from everywhere in the U.S.," said Norm McDonald "It makes you really feel good when you're down and have that kind of support.

"We really appreciate it, it's just overwhelming the amount of calls and e-mails we've gotten, it makes you really proud to be a part of motorcycling," Norm McDonald continued.

"The guy that hit him came up to the hospital, he was so devastated," said Norm McDonald. "He said 'The traffic was so heavy I just didn't see him.' He and his wife just stayed out there and bawled and bawled. There was so much blood on the scene when the TV crew showed up that they put it on as a motorcycle fatality, but didn't give any names, thankfully. Somebody must have been looking out for us because thankfully somebody at the scene put a tourniquet on him. Most of the time people don't want to get involved."

HOLY CRAP! He flew 150' after hitting the sign??? Where did this happen?

I see the offender used the ol' "I didn't see him" bit.

Not sure where it happened. I find the "I didn't see him" statement a bit hard to believe. Phil usually wears an orange construction vest with reflective tape over his gear. At least the guy who hit him seems to feel some remorse over it and people actually stopped to help.
