Family reports local motocross racer recovering after Saturday wreck
Local motocross racer, Rudy Reeves, 7, had an accident at a racing event in Louisiana Saturday, forcing medical officials to airlift the young man to a hospital in Baton Rouge.
Late Saturday evening, Rudy’s family took to Facebook to update his status.
“Well, we want to thank everyone for your prayers! Rudy took a bad fall today and dislocate his hip. He was airlifted to Baton Rouge and is doing great,” Rudy’s father, Tucker, said. “They were able to get his hip set without any issues. He will be out for 6 weeks or so to make sure he heals correct! We will miss Loretta’s this year but we will be healthy next year. Thanks again for the prayers!”
Rudy, a second-grade student at Bowmar Elementary School, finished sixth at the AMA Motocross Super Regionals in Blountville, Tenn. in June to qualify for the 2020 AMA National Motocross Championship in early August.
