Motocross Accident Leaves 15 Year Old Boy in Critical Condition
LAS VEGAS — Kyle Crider, a 15 year old Las Vegas native, was tragically injured while caution flagging at a practice event at Boulder City Motocross. Crider, a direct relative to the facility owners, was unprotected and hit by an oncoming motorcycle while attempting to flag for a downed rider. Crider was transported via helicopter to UMC Trauma in Las Vegas, where he remains in critical condition. He suffers multiple injuries, including head trauma and brain swelling. Unfortunately, his family does not have health insurance.
MSR, Answer Racing, and Pro Taper have generously stepped up to aid the family in time of need. Donated for auction, an autographed James Stewart jersey, Kevin Windham jersey, and Nick Wey jersey will be sold online with all proceeds going directly to the family. Additionally, signed Ryan Dungey bar pads will be raffled at local facilities.
Boulder City Motocross representative Bryce Davis commented, “It’s tragic. Kyle is my cousin and it really opens your eyes when something like this hits so close to home. It’s great to see MSR, Answer and Pro Taper lend out a helping hand in time of need. His family is so extremely appreciative of all the support they’ve gotten throughout this horrible ordeal.”
The jerseys will be auctioned on eBay, starting Monday, February 21, 2011 and running through February 28. The auctions can be found by searching through eBay using keywords “KYLE CRIDER BENEFIT.”
