Professional BMX rider Scotty Cranmer was shooting a film session with his Monster Energy team mates in Las Vegas Nevada on the evening of October 12th and caught his front wheel in a hole that catapulted him into a face plant without time to get his hands in front of him.
Suffering several facial fractures, cerebral hemorrhage and damage to his C4 and C5 vertebrae Road 2 Recovery jumped into action less than an hour after his accident. Currently we have assisted his Dad and wife with travel to be by his side.
R2R is working with local doctors and other specialists to insure Scotty gets the best possible care at this time. Multiple surgeries are in his future and the past few hours has resulted in the doctors calling him stable and strong for surgery on his vertebrae. We are wishing Scotty and his family the best and have set up a page on our website to keep people informed.
“Road 2 Recovery has been incredibly helpful in this situation. They are several steps ahead on what we need to do to help Scotty. This would be an even more difficult time without them. Thankfully things are a world of difference since yesterday and we are pleased with his progress. If you wish to help Scotty we ask that you donate to Road 2 Recovery at this time” Scott Cranmer. (Scotty’s Dad)
Please use the website that has been set up to leave a positive message for Scotty, his wife and his family.
We want to thank TJ Lavin and his family for providing information, support and sharing their experience with doctors in the Las Vegas area. The flow of information is coming in strong and we are pleased to have come so far in such a short time. We also would like to thank Connor Fields and his family for helping with a place to stay in Vegas.
