Directly following the incident, Ferris was airlifted to a local hospital where he was stabilised for symptoms of back and rib pain. Ferris has suffered several broken ribs and fractured vertebrae and is in a stable but serious condition.
The team will announce further updates accordingly regarding Ferris’ progress as his recovery develops and more information becomes available.
Ferris will be transferred this coming week to Brisbane Hospital for further treatment and evaluation.
Dean and wife Renae would like to take this time to thank all those involved at the Connondale club for helping him following the crash and also everyone for their phone calls and support.
