He adds: “Egan suffered a fractured vertebra, a fractured right femur, a fractured right patella, chest trauma, a punctured lung and several fractured ribs in the crash. Doctors were able to medically immobilize his right leg and stabilize the fractured vertebrae in two separate surgeries last night.”
Thanks to the clinic
Bernal collided with the back of a bus, which stopped to drop off a passenger, while the cyclist was training on the bike against the clock.
Once the fact was known, he was transferred in an abulancia to the Clínica de la Sabana, Chpia, where he was examined and underwent two surgeries to treat the fracture of the right femur and patella and the thoracic vertebrae.
“He is now in an intensive care unit where other potential secondary injuries are being managed, as well as his body’s response to the trauma,” the statement said.
