“Was in a multi car pile up early am, survived that in the pitch black, got out of my van, then got knocked down by another car!" - Shane Byrne.

And when he got up he got flattened by a steamroller then trampled by a herd of elephants!
It would be comical if it wasn't so serious.
Glad to hear Shakey and his family are all ok.

I have seen some lazy journalism in my time but this takes the p*ss. Why bother going out and getting stories when you can read 'twitter' or that other tossy journalism tool 'facebook'. Poor show crash, sort it out please.

@Lazyjournos
You cant get a better or truer story than directly from the horses mouth, so its hardly lazy. Anyway at least a story directly from the person is true and isnt open to journalism hype.

I think your name says it all :P

If someone was looking out for him why didnt they stop the accident before it happened rather than waiting until he'd been hit by another car after the first accident?

yes im an atheist and proud of it, and after an accident like that I'd be asking my "someone looking out for me" why they took their eye of the ball and nearly got me and my family killed

Really pleased that he and his family escaped any serious injury, as far as I can tell the off season is more dangerous to riders than the races!
For me Shakey and Easton on the PBM are the main interest for next season's BSB and I'm looking forward to a bit of the old Shakey magic.
