JPGDRU ’23 – Jay Petervary Struck by Car in Colorado.

I got the news over the weekend about Jay Petervary’s accident. He was in the midst of his Great Divide Ride Unearthed ride down the GDMBR from Jasper when he was struck by a car I forwarded as much of the news as I could via the MTBCast FB page. FWIW, the driver stayed on the scene and called for help; which is good to hear. Jay’s alive, aware, and has undergone and will undergo some surgeries. Additionally, he has:
-L2 burst fracture
-Left forearm fracture
-Right humerus fracture
-Cut cornea, but no blurred vision
-butt, hip, elbow abrasions
-Scheduled for arm surgery today.
-be there 2-3 days and do a spinal review
-possible backbrace 4-6 weeks
Jay is widely known for his tenacity and endurance; qualities that will no doubt serve him well in his recovery. There has been a huge outpouring of support, thoughts, and prayers. These haven’t gone unnoticed by his wife Tracey Petervary and are much appreciated. #RideForward
