Hibbert Suffers Internal Injuries
Monster Energy/Arctic Cat's Tucker Hibbert suffered internal injuries after crashing in a downhill section at the ISOC Nielsen Enterprises Grand Finale Saturday evening in Lake Geneva, Wisc.
Hibbert walked off the track under his own power but after his abdominal pain gradually increased, he chose to check himself into an ER at a local hospital.
It was quickly determined he had a moderate laceration in his left kidney which caused internal bleeding along with bruising on his pancreas.
He was transferred to a trauma center in Milwaukee where he is currently being closely monitored by his doctors and nurses.
He is fully alert and received no head trauma from the crash. His doctors are optimistic by his improvements overnight and expect him to make a full recovery without surgical repairs.
Hibbert was scheduled to fly to Sweden tomorrow to compete in the Clash of Nations Super Snowcross event March 23-24. It would have been his final snocross event of the 2011/2012 season.
Stay connected to his Facebook and Twitter accounts for more updates.
UPDATE (Facebook 0318/12):
Tucker has made significant improvements in the past 12 hours. Everything is looking up but we will know more tomorrow morning. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the well wishes. Please keep them coming!
