Gab Valenciano figures in motorcycle accident in California
Gab Valenciano sustained gashes on his arms and legs after he got sideswiped by a sports utility vehicle (SUV) on a freeway in California.
Valenciano narrated the incident while showing himself lying in a hospital bed with a neck support, through his Instagram page on Monday, May 22.
“Last Tuesday, my Tito Ranier and I spoke about me speaking and sharing my testimony in his church. A couple of moments after I left to go to him, this happened. I got side swiped on the freeway by an SUV at around 75mph, which launched me a good 70 feet away from the collision,” he said. “I was in full gear but because of the force of the impact and momentum, it burned through my jacket and pants.”
“This is the first accident in my entire life that I did not expect or see coming. Been riding for close to two decades and still, new unexpected experiences to learn from,” he continued.
Valenciano then expressed gratitude to those who extended help to him, especially the drivers and riders who checked on him right after the incident, as well as the firemen, police officers and emergency medical technicians who came to his rescue.
“Lastly, I want to say thank you to my Tito Ranier who picked me up in the hospital and took care of me for the first few days,” he stated. “It’s been very tough moving around especially at night considering I have gashes on my lower and upper back, so sleeping has been tough too but all is well. Slowly but surely.”
“Today is Sunday and by God’s grace, I was able to speak and share my life story with my family by my side,” he added. “In all things God works for the good of those who love Him. May God bless you all today and keep you and your loved ones safe out there. All is well in His name.”
