KSL5 news reported that Stephen Covey, author and motivational speaker, was in a bike accident in the Provo Foothills on Friday night which resulted in head trauma. He was knocked unconscious after losing control and then falling off of his bicycle. There were no others involved; he was simply riding too fast around a turn, lost control, and crashed. Emergency crews who responded said he had a giant “goose egg” on his forehead, despite the fact that he was wearing a helmet. Covey was unconscious when the medics arrived and remained so until getting to the hospital. He was later said to be responsive to family members.
Due to the head trauma sustained, Mr. Covey remained hospitalized. The bleeding and swelling in his brain have been watched with care. If the bleeding worsens, a surgical procedure will have to take place in order to relieve the pressure.
Covey is the author of “7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” and many other inspiring books. In 1997, he merged his company with Franklin Quest, which became FranklinCovey.
The Christensen Law Firm sends their deepest condolences to Mr. Covey and his family, and wishes him a speedy recovery.
