In 2003 he was involved in an on-track crash in a Swedish League. The resulting spinal cord injury left him partially paralysed, and ended his racing career. He has remained close to the speedway world, acting as a speedway manager and expert. After over a decade of determined and laborious rehabilitation, he managed to get back on his feet, and is now able to walk short distances.
