Motorcyclists Recovers From Serious Brain Injury After Crash

(Swansea Bay News) – Darren Lewis was thrown from his motorbike while riding in Mumbles in May 2021 after a dog dashed out between two parked cars, causing him to crash.

He was treated at the scene by EMRTS medics – the flying A&E service which accompanies Wales Air Ambulance – before being airlifted to University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff.

His skull had been fractured in five places, and he suffered a life-changing traumatic brain injury, spending two weeks in Cardiff before being transferred to the Neuro-rehabilitation Unit at Neath Port Talbot Hospital.

Although he has made significant progress, he continues to experience difficulties that affect his daily life, and which will remain life-long. CONTINUE
