It is truly remarkable that he is alive.
I hope he regains consciousness soon and has all his wits when he does.

Excellent news gortex my thanks

Having seen the crash I thought it was a miracle that he survived at all, here's hoping for a full recovery.

If this is the fellow whose car ploughed into the back end of one of the large plant vehicles parked up by the track, then I am amazed he did not have his head entirely caved in, or sheared off during the crash. The video of the crash makes your spine shake when you see the speed and angle of the impact. It looks as if the space which would have been occupied by his head, is all of a sudden taken up with the overhanging rear of the plant vehicle. Absolutely miraculous.

Without wishing to be a downer, he may have survived the crash in terms of his retention of his mortality, but I do not know how it would be possible for him to expect to retain anything more than that after such a devastating smash up!
