There are new updates on the condition of Hayes Grier after his terrifying dirt bike crash. In a new statement, it’s revealed that he will not be leaving the hospital any time soon as he continues recovering. Click inside to read the full message.
“Earlier today, Hayes Grier was involved in a dirt bike accident and immediately transported to a local hospital. Hayes suffered a concussion, broken rib, bruised lung, and multiple skin lacerations,” a rep for Hayes, 16, told J-14 in an official statement after news broke of his scary accident on Thursday, July 28.
The statement continues, “Thankfully, he is okay and currently resting and recovering in the hospital surrounded by his family, where he will remain for the next few days. We can’t thank you all enough for the outpouring of prayers and support for Hayes!” Even though it sucks he’ll be stuck in the hospital for a few days, at least he is recuperating well and getting lots of rest.
It was Hayes’ brother, Nash, 18, who broke the news to fans that his little brother had been involved in a terrible accident. “Just got a call on set that said Hayes was in a crash. He’s now in the hospital,” Nash wrote, along with the hashtag “#PrayForHayes.” Fans were immediately concerned and started sending their well wishes to the family, but Nash followed up with a screen grab of a text letting him know that Hayes didn’t suffer any “major” injuries. Phew!
Both Hayes and Nash are best known as being some of the most hilarious Vine stars on the app. Hayes also appeared on a season of Dancing With The Stars alongside pro-dancer, Emma Slater, but he was eliminated before the finals.
