The former MotoGP champion was hit by a vehicle, while he was driving his bicycle.
"Nicky Hayden's clinical conditions remain extremely serious", the Bufalini hospital of Cesena said in a statement. Italian media quoted the hospital as saying on Wednesday that Hayden had suffered a cerebral edema and lower body fractures and surgery had not been possible immediately because of his condition. This incident took place in Rimini in Italy, this Wednesday afternoon, and the site of a auto after that collision, shows the horrific intensity of this crash. In his career, he won MotoGP title back in 2006, and he did it in the time when Valentino Rossi was unstoppable.
Hayden was born in Owensboro in Kentucky and his talent was there for all to see early on. The news was announced by the American's Honda World Superbike team.
He won the MotoGP championship in 2006 and has been competing for Team Honda in the Superbike category since previous year. The Superbike World Championship says the incident occurred Wedn.
Later, in 2009, he became Ducatti driver, and in 2014 he came back to Honda, his favorite manufacturer.

The missile, launched at a steep angle, reached an altitude of 2000km and travelled about 700km, landing in the sea west of Japan. But its arsenal is growing, so too the pace of its tests and its threats to carry out a seventh nuclear test.
Hayden was taken to the hospital after being struck by a auto while training on his bicycle along Italy's Adriatic coast, following a weekend Superbike race at the Imola circuit.
Honda said he was taken initially by ambulance to a hospital near the coastal resort of Rimini before being transferred to Cesena.
Nicky Hayden's medical condition was called "extremely critical" by the hospital in Italy where he was taken after he was hit by a auto while bicycle training Wednesday. Paramedics stabilized him on site, and then he was taken to the nearest hospital with the highest gravity code. We would like to thank everyone for their kind wishes and messages of support and the assistance of emergency and medical services.
"The situation is stable", said the brief statement issued by the hospital on Friday morning.
