Glenn Palmer in Motorcycle Accident
Glenn Palmer, considered one of the most important paintball gun developers in the history of the game, was hospitalized after injuring himself during a motorcycle crash. Palmer, who's most well-known for owning and operating Palmer's Pursuit Shop, a custom paintball store that specializes in original parts and products, underwent successful surgery following the accident and is now said to be recovering comfortably.
His son has been keeping a constant stream of updates through their blog page, which includes details on the accident itself.
"So I will get to the bad news first.
Two broken wrist... Hospital had to fly in a special plate thus delaying surgery for a day. Possible broken ribs Small factures in a couple vertebra.... mostly those little bones that hold the muscle in place. Fractured cheek bone and black eyes. Not sure if he is missing any new teeth. Medi-vac from Columbus ,MT to Billings, MT at around 1pm Saturday. Short term memory loss. Giving him a mirror helped him believe that he crashed. A little bit on long term memory loss. He is still piecing all of his memories together Has no memory of the crash.. ( I will try to find out more from the MHP). Sleeps a ton.
Now for the good news. GP is hard to kill. He can walk, talk, and stand even though he's not supposed to. Staff has said that GP has been a pleasure to deal with. Still the class clown even though he's busted up. Neck is fine. He says his ribs don't hurt but that may be the drugs.
Everything below his ribs are fine. THE HELMUT SAVED HIS LIFE!"
