Dan Walker gives update after near-fatal bike crash left him a ‘bloody mess’

Dan Walker issues update on recovery following bike accident

Dan Walker saw the police and paramedics stand over him while he went deaf and his body ached.

The Channel 5 News host admitted he has no recollection of the accident and despite not breaking any bones, he remembered his face being a “bloody mess”.

In a new update, Dan, 46, said a police officer told him: “Another 50cm and it essentially runs over your head.”

Camera footage of the near-fatal accident showed him being thrown off his bike and into the path of the car, with his bike being crushed.

Dan was hit by a car at a busy roundabout back in February and later revealed his helmet saved his life.

Speaking about his health, he shared: “I have no recollection of the accident at all, so I’m not suffering any sort of flashbacks or anything like that.

“I’m thankful that I’m back on the bike.”

The broadcaster was surprised how quickly his face healed as he went back to his work commitments soon after the horror crash.

Dan presented at the Royal Television Society Programme Awards just days after his accident.
