Mark Webber was hurt in a road accident during his Mark Webber Pure tasmania Challenge. He suffered multiple fractures to his arms and legs when he was hit by a car. Webber was cycling along a road near Port Arthur in the southeast of Tasmania when he was involved in a collision with a four-wheel drive vehicle. Police say he was treated at the scene and airlifted to hospital in Hobart. His injuries are said to be not life-threatening. Webber Challenge media manager Nancy Cook:
“Mark’s been involved in a minor accident, he’s fine. He’s being treated, he’s really disappointed that he’s not going to be able to continue but he’s well and being looked after.”
Mark Webber is expected to be out of action for the rest of the year as a result of this accident.
