    Clark Carlisle Airlifted to Hospital After Serious Lorry Accident

    Clarke Carlisle in hospital after serious road accident


    Former Professional Footballers' Association chairman Clarke Carlisle is in hospital after being involved in a serious road accident on Monday.
    The ex-Burnley defender, 35, was airlifted to Leeds General Infirmary.
    The cause of the accident is unknown, although the BBC understands his injuries are not life threatening.
    Carlisle is an ambassador for equality campaign body Kick It Out, who tweeted: "The thoughts and prayers of everyone here are with Clarke and his family."
    The tweet added: "Stay strong our dear friend - keep on fighting."
    Police have appealed for witnesses to the collision, which happened on the A64 near the village of Bishopthorpe, at 07:30 GMT.
    A police spokeswoman said: "The collision involved a male pedestrian and a lorry.
    "The injured man has been airlifted to Leeds General Infirmary with serious injuries.
    "The road was closed to allow the air ambulance to land and to allow collision investigators to examine the scene."
    Part of the road was closed for a number of hours while investigations took place.
    The Football Association tweeted: "The thoughts and prayers of all at the FA are with Clarke Carlisle and his family at this sad time."
    Centre-back Carlisle made more than 500 appearances during a playing career spanning 16 years at nine clubs, including Leeds and QPR,
    He retired from professional football in 2013 after his last club, Northampton, were beaten by Bradford in the League Two play-off final, before working as a TV pundit.
    Carlisle, who left school with 10 Grade A GCSEs, has earned a reputation for his intelligence, appearing on Channel Four's Countdown and the BBC's Question Time.
    And through his role with Kick It Out, Carlisle - who is married with three children - has become a vociferous campaigner for inclusion and equality in football.
    Burnley FC tweeted: "The thoughts of all at Burnley Football Club are with Clarke Carlisle and his family."

    Just read about this on twitter, shitty day for road accidents.

    I know there's never a good time for this stuff, but it's a pretty awful time for a family to have to go through something like this. Here's to a full recovery.
