He’s part of our group.  He’s actually at Dumont now, with us.  Very lucky to have a bad gash on his head, 9 staples, and some nasty bruises.  Very lucky, but he’s going to be just fine.

Did he flip from turning too quick on a fairly flat area?  What caused the gash on his head?  Glad he's ok!!  I'm asking cause I'm always trying to decide between helmet or no helmet in the buggy.

According to Dan he had just got there, went for a quick ride and misjudged a dune with the sun in his face on the way back to camp. The hook where his headsets hang is what caused the head injury.

Correct.  Also, bad habit of not cinching his shoulder belts tight which allowed him to fly around more during the crash.

Some of our group started wearing helmets.  Probably safer but for sure, tighten all of your harnesses. Accidents suck but preventable injuries are worse.

Those Billet type Headset holders are beefy! Yikes!

 

Tight belts or don't bother wearing them is the rule.

 

Really glad to hear dude will be just fine....cheers!
