Gab Valenciano recovering from motorcycle race accident
MANILA, Philippines — Singer and dancer Gab Valenciano said Sunday that he is recovering from injuries in a motorcycle racing accident.
Valenciano narrated the incident in an Instagram story on Sunday: “Another rider came out of nowhere and hit me from the rear, so I violently veered towards the barrier, flew across a 10 ft drop and finally was stopped by hitting a tree.”
“BUT that’s racing and it happens. Sometimes even worse,” he added.
Valenciano assured his followers that he is recovering, but is still waiting for the final assessment of his condition.
“To those asking, I’m alright. Thank you. At the hospital and recovering with a sprained ankle and cervical pain/spasms. Still waiting for the final assessment though,” he said.
The singer-dancer also expressed thanks to the crew who assisted him after the accident.
“Can’t complain and I’m thankful to God for protecting me still. Thank you to the emergency crew who put in the work to make sure I was okay. Will be back for round 3 next month. Stronger than ever,” he said.
Valenciano also wished well to another racer who also got involved in an accident: “Prayers to another racer who had a terrible crash shortly after. He was unconscious and intubated. God be with you bro.” (Editor: Eden Estopace)
