My brother-in-law almost got himself killed on an atv. Color me not a fan. Hopefully Amy will recover enough to have a full life.

I think that is all you hope for in accidents like these.

That's awful. You don't recover from a severed spinal cord. She will be paralyzed from the waist down. I would think the immediate concern would be myelomalacia secondary to the trauma.

I can't imagine dealing with that after being as active as she must be.

Awful thing to happen. ATVs and horses can really hurt people. I suppose cars aren't great either, but its one thing to be out on a trail having fun to deal with this ****.

Horrible news about one of Colorado's best athletes of the last quarter century.

I hate this... looks like her spinal cord is completely severed. As far as I know you can't recover from that.

I met her at the Red Robin in Highlands Ranch @ 470 and Broadway. She was nice enough to let me and my sister take a picture with her.

Sad.

Never been a fan of the quads myself. I know I'd want to go like a bat out of hell and probably launch myself into a cactus or something.

Best wishes to her.

ATV's are fun to ride. It was my daily driver down in Santorini. Hope she recovers.

Really sad news. Hate hearing about this for anyone, but obviously her being such a local sports icon it hits home. She can't recover from this though, severed spine is as absolute as it gets. Just ****ing tragic.

Damn, one of my favorite athletes ever. Hope she recovers as much as is possible, and is able to enjoy life to its fullest.

Even though it was just trivial fun, I feel bad bashing Captain Touchback, as we used to call him back in the day. That's such a fear of mine for myself and my kids. I have no interest in riding any type of motor sport vehicle, primarily because of that fear. Sad story!!
