Disney 'Camp Rock 2' actor Mdot severely injured in Malibu motorcycle accident
Matthew "Mdot" Finley was on a Ducati motorcycle on a ride with friends last Thursday when the 23-year-old actor hit a rough patch in the road and slid for an unknown distance before plunging off a cliff on Mulholland Drive, according to his representative, Eric Ortner.
Los Angeles County rescue personnel and sheriff's deputies went to the scene, where they hiked down into a ravine and pulled the actor up in a Stokes basket before transporting him to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
"We pray for Mdot's recovery," Ortner said. "He had such a bright future, and we believe he will overcome this terrible accident."
In addition to the compound fracture to his leg, Finley suffered other broken bones as well cuts and bruising.
