Horrifying Cycling Crash At Commonwealth Games Puts Multiple Riders In Hospital

A scary scene unfolded at the Commonwealth Games on Sunday when cyclists collided in a terrible crash. The multi-rider crash forced the event to be abandoned altogether.

The wreck occurred during a qualifying heat in the men’s 15km qualifier. England’s Matt Walls flew over the barrier along with his bike and was taken away by ambulance after over a half-hour worth of medical attention. Racer Matt Bostock was taken off the track on a stretcher and was taken to a nearby hospital as well.

The crash also impacted spectators with one leaving in a wheelchair and a little girl receiving medical attention.

Videos and images of the crash are truly insane.

British Cycling posted an update on Sunday afternoon explaining that Walls received stitches in his forehead before being discharged from the hospital.

Thankfully, the injured spectators did not need to be taken to the hospital for treatment.

This particular wreck comes one day after English cyclist Joe Truman was knocked unconscious in a crash of his own.

Cyclists in the velodrome can reach speeds up to 60 mph. Obviously, a cycling wreck traveling at that speed can cause some serious injuries.
