Injury Update from Justin "Big Chief" Shearer
"THANK YOU EVERYONE.... I'm pretty beat up right now. Just woke me up for some breathing treatments. Pulmonary contusions (bruised lungs). Crushed my L2 and L3 in my back, broken collarbone, and pretty beat up, but so thankful to be alive right now. They got me on non stop oxygen and another round of cat scans, and X-rays coming up. The surgeon doesn't believe i will need back operation anymore, but they are going to keep me in the hospital again tonight to keep an eye on the lungs, YES I WILL BE BACK!"
According to Yellow Bullet, and a multitude of social media sources, the Discovery Channel show Street Outlaws was reportedly filming an episode late Saturday night (November 14, 2015), when one of the show’s stars, Justin “Big Chief” Shearer, and Brian “Chucky” Davis made contact during a run, resulting in what appeared to have been a fairly serious wreck for both drivers.
Exact injuries are currently unknown, but Shearer and Davis are reportedly under watch at a local hospital with back pain.
This news comes one month after the drive-by shooting at Midwest Street Cars, where Shearer works.
We wish both drivers a speedy recovery.
