Update On Bono Frontman for U2 Being Seriously Injured in Bicycle Crash

Bono age 54, suffered serious injuries in a Bicycle crash and will be out of action for an extended amount of time. As our readers will recall, the lead U2 band member sustained a broken left humerus bone in his left arm, shattered shoulder blade and facial fracture that included the orbit of his eye.

In total, Bono sustained six fractures at the elbow. Bono underwent five hours of surgery and orthopedic trauma surgeon Dean Lorich, MD stated his elbow was cleaned to remove debris and a trapped nerve. The bone was repaired with three metal plates and 18 screws. The band member underwent a second surgery for damage to his left pinky finger at the New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.

Medical professionals stated the singer’s worst injuries were the facial fracture involving the orbit of his yet and the broken bone that tore through his skin. According to doctors the singer will require intensive and progressive therapy to fully recover. Bono is an avid cyclist according to reports. As I have warned my readers before, riding injuries do not discriminate.

No matter how safe you are, no matter what the laws are regarding looking our for riders, passenger car drivers still run us over. Read my tips on staying safe, and hope for the best. In the meantime, Bono may never play guitar again. So make sure you understand the risks versus the reward when riding on city roads and streets near motor vehicles people. Being thrown from a bike usually means bad injuries, or even a death.

With distracted driving, and the low silhouette of bikes and small size, we riders are at a particular risk and one must consider this before pedaling down the road.
