Chad Reed seriously injured at Seattle Supercross

Chad Reed lost traction as the field entered the second jump section at Seattle on the weekend, which caused Chad and his Suzuki to dart left into the pack, bringing Ryan Breece and Justin Brayton down, before Kyle Chisholm was left with no choice but to land right on top of Reed.
