The latest update is that Kevin Pearce continues to make progress after the crash that almost took his life.
He suffered a traumatic brain injury while practicing a new trick in Utah.

In a statement, one of his doctors, Holly Ledyard, said that Pearce, “is able to walk and do many daily activities with some assistance.”

The doctors said that his injury resulted into Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and his physical, emotional & psychological recovery will take longtime to recover.

Pearce's parents, Simon and Pia Pearce, are thankful for all the help and support they and their son have received.
