Fundraising page for motorbike rider's crash exceeds target
A fundraising page, set up after a motorbike rider’s crash left him in a coma, has exceeded its target.
Aaron Clifford was in an accident involving two other riders during the warm-up lap of a National STK600 race at Snetterton Circuit on Sunday, July 21.
The 19-year-old Irish rider was placed into a medically-induced coma and was then airlifted to Addensbrooke’s Hospital.
His injuries include a serious head injury, two broken cheek bones, a collapsed left lung, broken sternum, multiple broken ribs, broken wrists and right arm, shattered left femur, broken neck and dislocated pelvis.
Friends of the family have now set themselves the goal of raising £18,500 for the teen’s medical expenses. So far, they have raised more than £20,000.
Writing on the page, parents Kenneth and Michelle said: “This is going to be an extremely long and difficult road for Aaron. We would like to thank everyone for all their kind messages and prayers.
“Also a very special thank you to the BSB medical team and the air ambulance.”
