Tori Spelling‘s husband Dean McDermott is in the Intensive Care Unit at a Los Angeles area hospital after a dirt bike accident. Dean was unable to move and was bleeding heavily from his right side with a puncture wound. They later discovered Dean had a punctured and collapsed lung, but he is expected to make a full recovery.
Tori spoke with People about the accident and how she received the news of his latest crash.
“His friend called me and said he was in the ER. He didn’t want to to scare me so he just said he had a crash and that they were X-raying him.”
“At first I was mad. I was pissed that he was out biking and crashed. But when I showed up and saw him lying there, and they told me they were admitting him to ICU with a collapsed lung, my heart dropped. My biggest fear had come true.”
Dean had fractured his shoulder in a motorcycle accident earlier this year and the couple have had an ongoing disagreement about his riding hobby. He initially said he would only ride recreationally after the first accident, but now he has promised Tori he will never ride again.
“When I first saw him he just softly said ‘I’m so sorry. I just held his hand and cried. That’s when he said, ‘I’ll never do this again. You and the kids mean everything to me.’ “
Here’s to wishing Dean a speedy recovery and hoping he doesn’t get hooked on the OxyContin he’ll be taking for pain!
