YouTube Star Hayes Grier Hospitalized After Suffering Injuries in Crash
Grier’s brother Nash Grier posted on Twitter that Grier suffered a concussion, two fractured ribs and a bruised lung after crashing his dirt bike.
In follow-up tweets, Nash wrote, “He can move & talk (thank god) but he’s coughed up a lot of blood. That’s all I know. Praying he has a quick recovery. Damn I hate hearing s–t like that on the phone, scared me to death.”
His rep gave an update to UsWeekly, “Earlier today, Hayes Grier was involved in a dirt bike accident and immediately transported to a local hospital. Hayes suffered a concussion, broken rib, bruised lung, and multiple skin lacerations. Thankfully, he is OK and currently resting and recovering in the hospital surrounded by his family, where he will remain for the next few days. We can’t thank you all enough for the outpouring of prayers and support for Hayes!”
Hayes, who has over 14 million followers across Facebook, Vine, Instagram and YouTube, is scheduled next to appear a streaming series called Top Grier for Verizon’s Go90, in which he attempts to run his family’s 19-acre farm in Moorseville, North Carolina.
