SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - A lawyer says a motorcycle stunt man who plunged 25 feet to the ground during a Saginaw performance has reached an $800,000 settlement with a circus.

Josh Headford’s motocross bike hit a cable at the Shrine Circus in February 2012. He broke his femur, wrist, elbow and other bones.

Attorney Bobby Raitt tells The Saginaw News (https://bit.ly/1yi8ipC) that a lawsuit was settled in August with Brett Carden Circus. He says Headford, who was wearing a helmet and pads, can’t ride his motorcycle again.

Raitt says the cable should have been removed.

Spectators were stunned when Headford crashed to the floor. The ringmaster declared, “I need a doctor immediately. This is not part of the performance.”
