Olympic Mountain Biker and BMX World Champ in Car Crash

Sending healing vibes to Caroline Buchanan

While many of us saw in the new year with celebration, friends and family, Caroline Buchanan had a very different experience.

The 5 time Mountain Bike World Champ and 3 times BMX World Champ posted the following to social media…

I wouldn't say 2017 ended quite as planned. Its been a rough couple of days in ICU after a vehicle roll. I just moved to a private room and everything is moving in a positive recovery direction. Injuries are… Broken sternum, broken nose, collapsed lungs. I'll will keep you guys up to date as we go. Happy New Year! Off season just got a little more tough!! ????????????

Sending healing vibes, Caroline!
