According to a report on TMZ.com, police are investigating whether Gregory Shane Helms was intoxicated at the time of his motorcycle crash Thursday night that left the former WWE Superstar and his girlfriend, Karen, hospitalized with serious injuries.
A witness cited in a police report says Helms and his girlfriend were riding home from a restaurant in Smithfield, North Carolina at approximately 9:15 p.m. when Helms went through a stop sign, lost control of the bike and “drove straight through the metal chain link fence.”
TMZ says the witness told officers he was hanging out with Helms at the restaurant minutes before the crash and said he “was sure” Helms had been drinking.
Helms and his girlfriend were treated at an area hospital for “multiple broken bones and other injuries.” Officers took a blood sample from Helms at the hospital to check his blood alcohol level, but it could take several months to obtain.
An investigation into the crash is still ongoing and no charges have been filed against Helms.
Matt Hardy said today that Helms and Karen are “both still in the hospital and will be for a while, but are slowly improving.”
