Eddie Kidd Accident

On 6 August 1996, Kidd was involved in a serious motorcycle accident while performing at the Bulldog Bash, held at Long Marston Airfield near Stratford-upon-Avon. In comparison to some of his previous stunts, the jump Kidd made that day was relatively minor, comprising a jump of approximately 15 m (49 ft) across a drag strip.

The relatively short landing area beyond the drag strip consisted of an uphill incline leading to the edge of a steep embankment. Although Kidd completed the jump and landed the bike upright on two wheels, his chin struck the petrol tank of his motorcycle and he was knocked unconscious.

As a result, he was unable to prevent himself and his bike from continuing up and over the 6 m (20 ft) embankment edge. He sustained serious head and pelvic injuries in the resulting fall. After the accident, doctors told Kidd’s parents that it was possible he could be in a coma for up to 10 years. However, he regained consciousness within three months of the accident but was left paralysed and with brain damage.
