Kyle Greeson the privateer suffered a serious crash last weekend at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park while training for the 2023 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship. Greeson’s crash came the day after Brandon Hartranft suffered a significant crash of his own while training, which resulted in severe injuries to his spine as well. The California native competed in five 450 Class rounds of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship over the summer, finishing 19th in the final moto of the year. The GasGas rider posted a quick update on his Instagram story over the weekend, and then provided an in-depth update on Instagram earlier this afternoon.
“Well the past 4 days have been rough, for those who dont know i had a crash last Wednesday riding sx at lake elsinore, i got wheelspin up the lip of the triple and came up way short causing me to just fold myself, when i tried to stand up after the crash i could not stand up, my legs just wouldn’t work, which was probably one of the most scary moments of my life. Luckily after i laid there for a couple minutes i started being able to move my legs and the numbness and tingling mostly went away, i ended up having a burst fracture to my L3 which is pretty much completely shattered and a pinch off nerve which is what caused my numbness and tingling. Doing much better now just trying to recover in the hospital and was stoke to be able to walk around a bit yesterday! Thank you for all the messages and everyone checking up on me i truly appreciate it 🙏🏻🙌🏻”
