CATSKILL, N.Y. — Heavyweight champion Mike Tyson suffered a head injury when his car crashed on a rain-slicked road near his training camp Sunday and he was listed in stable condition, a hospital spokeswoman said.
The 22-year-old champion was scheduled to undergo neurological tests at the Columbia-Greene Medical Center in Catskill, about 20 miles south of Albany, said spokeswoman Ann Grebert. The injury was the second in two weeks for Tyson, who hurt his hand in a street fight Aug. 23.
"At 11:20 a.m., Mike Tyson's automobile skidded on a wet road near his training ground in Catskill, N.Y.," said Grebert, reading a statement she said was approved by "Tyson's family."
"Mr. Tyson suffered a head injury and was brought to the Columbia-Greene Medical Center in Catskill," the statement continued. "He is in stable condition, but his physicians have recommended that he undergo further neurological tests."
