Apparently hes in a coma and sounds like ^this happened. The bed of his truck was struck by the train so he was half way passed the tracks. Hopefully he comes out of it. Last article i read said he was awake and aware on scene but they airlifted him anyway. Awake then coma sounds like some major brain trauma.


Yeah, spot on, usually medically induced to reduce brain swelling.

Had a buddy who fell on his head roughly 20-25ft about 1.5months ago, was in a medically induced coma for about 1.5wks.. crazy about 1 month later he is now home recovering, looong road to full recovery if there will be one but this could be similar to Matt's situation.

Surviving a 20ft fall is pretty fucking astonishing. What a lucky fella (not the original accident, of course).

Cox, who is speaking directly with Hughes’ brother Mark, said family and doctors are “optimistic and hopeful” about Hughes’ condition.

“He is awake, but eyes closed,” Cox said. “Can squeeze hands.”

Oh and my condolences to the Jones's family as well

Still out but a bit responsive.

No broken bones might indicate that the crash wasn't the most violent but head trauma is a fickle fucker. Hopefully they're just playing it safe with the induced coma.

Matt is on UFC classics right now on FoxSportsSouth. Fighting Newton. Still cant believe this shit happened. Fight brother.

He just slammed Newton and tapped out the good GSP. Now its Frank "Tramp Stamp" Triggs turn.

Matt vs Penn 2 is about to start, probably going to change the channel before it never happened.
