His helmet was cracked and he was bleeding from a cut on his head. We called an ambulance and the guy was rushed to the hospital. If he didn't have a helmet, he might have died.
The ground isn't really all that much softer on the MUT.

Used to have people ask me why I wore full face while riding my Vespa... the cars and ground are no softer on the Vespa than the BMW.
