Seven-time Olympic cycling medalist Bradley Wiggins was released from the hospital Friday after spending two nights in observation following a collision with a van near his home in Lancashire.
While Wiggins sustained only a broken rib and a busted finger after being hit by a van that was pulling out of a gas station, his Team Sky and Great Britain national coach, Shane Sutton, suffered a head injury when he was hit by a 61-year-old man driving a blue Peugeot during a different accident Thursday.
Sutton suffered a broken cheek bone and bleeding of the brain, but is in stable condition at a hospital in Manchester near where the accident took place.
“It is extremely rare that our riders and coaches are hurt while out cycling on the road, even rarer that two incidents should occur in a short space of time,” a spokesperson for the Great Britain cycling said in a release. “We wish Shane and Bradley a speedy recovery.”
The helmets both men were wearing are credited for ensuring the injuries were not more significant than they already seemed. Sutton is expected to be released from the hospital Saturday and make a full recovery.
