Doctors have said motorcyclist Curtis Gordon is expected to have a long recovery having broken several bones in a crash in Falmouth.
The Customs Officer was rushed to hospital on Thursday after the Suzuki motorcycle he was riding on Falmouth main road collided with an SUV and the impact threw him several metres from the point of impact.
Head of the Traffic Department, Superintendent Leonard Cabral, said Gordon’s right hand, right leg and pelvis were broken in the crash.
Superintendent Cabral also said there’s no word yet from doctors about the possible timeframe for Gordon’s recovery given the nature of his injuries.
Hospital sources told OBSERVER media that Gordon received surgery Thursday night and he required blood for his procedure.
“It is hard to say at this stage, but injuries such as these can take a very long time to heal properly. But with the right attitude and support systems patients have been known to prove their medical team wrong,” a source said.
Our newsroom attempted to obtain comments from relatives of the injured man but was unable to contact them by telephone at the time of going to press.
