As a result of his crash in the National Superstock 1000 race at Knockhill, HM Plant Honda rider Jason O’Halloran suffered internal injuries, resulting in an operation being necessary to remove his spleen on Sunday evening at the Queen Mary Hospital in Dunfermline.
According to the official HM Plant Honda press release, O’Halloran ‘also has damage and swelling to his left kidney although doctors hope the bruising will subside on its own, and the next few days will determine any further course of action that may need to be taken.
The young Aussie also sustained a broken left leg just above his ankle and will undergo surgery later in the week to pin this.’
O’Halloran’s injuries were sustained in a crash with several riders at the first turn on the opening lap of the race.
