The session restarted, but just a few minutes later Cal Crutchlow suffered a fast lowside fall through the turn 11 'waterfall' downhill right-hander.

Crutchlow appeared unhurt but, as with the morning accidents for Andrea Dovizioso and Andrea Iannone at the same corner, his motorcycle was heavily damaged after rolling through the gravel.

Crutchlow also fell this morning, at turn one.

ORIGINAL STORY: Friday afternoon practice for the German MotoGP has been red flagged after a big accident for Jorge Lorenzo.

The injured MotoGP champion - who broke his left collarbone just two weeks ago at Assen, but still rode to fifth in the race - was thrown into the air, then landed heavily on the injured shoulder, after a highside out of turn 10.

Lorenzo - fastest this morning and again at the time of his afternoon fall, which occured after just seven minutes - walked away but quickly unzipped the front of his leathers to check his recently plated collarbone.

The session was red-flagged to retrieve Lorenzo's bike, which came to a rest in the middle of the track.

Lorenzo is just nine points behind title leader Dani Pedrosa.
