During 10 years of competition, Hilary Musson only suffered two accidents and injured her wrist. In 2006, she and her husband moved to the Isle of Man. A year later, a terrible accident took her left leg. The bitter thing was when she retired from the Isle of Man TT.
On the day of the accident, (June 7, 2007) a racer rushed his car along the mountain, crashed into a street light and died on the spot. The 200-kg motorcycle crashed on the road like a rocket and flew straight into a nearby audience. Two spectators died and two controllers were seriously injured, including Ms. Musson. She woke up in the hospital with multiple injuries and one leg was cut.
