Cut and paste from easttnriders thread,
"A messege from his wife, Mel
Jeff is now stable but still in critical condition. Injuries he has sustained include fractured skull at frontal lobe and orbital area, missing four front teeth with torn lip, facial reconstruction in the future, broken C1,C2,T3,L2,L3 and L4, broken ribs on both sides and collapsed lungs with lacerations to liver and kidney. Thank you for all your love, prayers, and support."
I would bet the rider above was not wearing a full face helmet.
It's a public road, not a private race track.
