TT Sidecar passenger unlikely to walk again

Thu, 07 Jul 2011

A sidecar passenger injured during this year's TT has been told he's unlikely to walk again.

Jerry Walker, passenger for Tassilo Gall, sustained serious spinal injuries in the first sidecar race at this year's event following an accident at Sulby Bridge .

He's been transferred to Holland to continue his treatment at a clinic near his home.

As he only had basic insurance and was competing on a Belgium licence, he is not covered for medical treatment.

Offers of help or donations towards his recovery can be made by contacting Wyn Evans on 433540
