Answer: Gary Busey

Great job Kickin’ It Old School (@oldschool80s)!!

On December 4, 1988, Gary Busey picked up his motorcycle from a repair shop, then slid on a patch of gravel at 40 mph, flipped over the handlebars, and hit his unprotected head on a curb. According to USA Today, doctors told Busey that had he arrived at the hospital even three minutes later, he would not have survived. He was in a coma for 4 weeks and regained consciousness on Jan. 6, 1989. He recovered – at least physically. Mentally, I’m not so sure. Is anybody else watching All-Star Celebrity Apprentice this season? He is quite crazy – but perhaps the most entertaining person on the show.
