English broadcast journalist Dan Walker shared a slew of bloodied selfies after getting into a bike accident on Monday morning.
In a series of tweets, the Channel 5 anchor shared photos taken inside an ambulance and wrote, “Glad to be alive after getting hit by a car on my bike.” Later, he posted a thread after returning home from the hospital, sharing pictures of his black eye, shattered Apple Watch, and ripped pants.
“Battered and bruised but – amazingly – nothing broken,” he shared, before adding the helpful reminder, “The helmet I was wearing saved my life today so – if you’re on a bike – get one on your head.”
According to Variety, Walker will miss Monday evening’s broadcast while he recovers.

Blown away by all the lovely messages. Thank you.— Dan Walker (@mrdanwalker) February 20, 2023
Just got home from hospital. Battered and bruised but – amazingly – nothing broken.
Very thankful to still be here. I have no memory of anything and just remember coming round on the tarmac with paramedics & police around me
Sounds like a moron to me!
99.99% of people don’t care about this…
