“Despite some cuts and broken ribs, I’m fine,” he said.
“I will be taking some time over the next few weeks to heal and be back on the road soon,” he added in his note. “I am grateful to the medics and highway patrol for their quick response to this difficult situation. Thank you to everyone for their concern.”
