It has always been a given to Cas Jansen, 45, that he can go to work every day. “I didn’t think something would happen that wouldn’t make that possible,” Cass says. “But now I know that a major accident is imminent, and that your life can literally be turned upside down.” Last March, Kass rode his electric bike next to a close friend. He swerved because there was a glass on the road, and crashed into his friend. Because of the speed, I flew off my bike and ended up two meters away. flat on my face.
He remembers little of what happened in the following minutes. Cass was taken to the hospital by ambulance. There they found a hemorrhage in my brain and I was operated on immediately. Fortunately, it turned out to be nothing serious, but I was still afraid of brain damage. I had to let go of the idea that I could be back on the GTST set after a couple of days. My jaw broke in two places, my teeth were broken and my lips were cracked. All of this can be fixed, but it will take some time. However, I know very well that I was very lucky. I wasn’t wearing a helmet, so I could have had a brain injury. From now on, I will not ride an e-bike without a helmet.
