Teen Mom's Maci Bookout had quite a scare over Columbus Day weekend, when her brother, Matt Bookout, got into a serious accident. Maci didn't go into details about the events of the weekend, but word on the street is that Matt crashed a motorcycle and suffered a slew of serious injuries.
We've been all kinds of anxious about Maci's big bro, but The Ashley's Reality Roundup has new details about Matt's accident that sheds some light on the situation. (Note: These details are unconfirmed by Maci herself, but The Ashley has a stellar reputation!)
According to the gossip site, camera-shy Matt was riding his dirt bike near his pop's automotive shop in the wee hours of Saturday, October 12. He crashed the bike and sustained four fractures to his skull — all because he wasn't wearing a helmet!
Matt's lucky to be alive, and it looks like he's making good progress on the road to recovery. In fact, Maci tweeted that he's already back home!
"So happy to have my brother home with us..." she shared. "Cant express how thankful i am to still have him & for all of the prayers!"
Matt's accident is a reminder of how important it is to wear helmets when bike riding. And considering that most of the men in Maci's life ride bikes professionally, we're hoping they learn from Matt's mistake. Let's not forget that Maci's own son, Bentley, is a pro dirt biker — but don't worry, little dude is all about safety!
