The Anderson family has released an update on legendary Grave Digger Monster Truck driver Dennis Anderson. He’s up and moving, the statement said.

The Capital Sports Report reached out to Ryan Anderson, who released the statement, below to see if he would release exactly what happened. However, at the time of this post, he has not replied to our request for more information.

Anderson was injured in a back flip attempt at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. After going up for the jump, he landed on the roof of his truck.

Medical personnel rushed to his aid seconds later after he landed. However, this wasn’t a normal situation, when he would get out of the truck and wave to his fans.

Instead, it took the medical personnel several minutes to get him out.

“Unfortunately, Dennis Anderson sustained an injury during the 7 p.m. performance of Monster Jam on Saturday, January 14, 2017 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.,” Amanda Regan, Monster Jam spokeswoman told The Capital Sports Report. “Medical care professionals tended to Anderson on-site and then transported him to a local hospital for further evaluation. No further updates are available at this time.”

With his injury, there is no timetable on when Anderson will be able to return. The Kill Devils Hill, N.C. native will have to rely on his other drivers to drive the most recognizable Monster Truck in the Monster Jam.

Anderson has been competing in Monster Trucks since 1982. The 56-year-old has won four World Finals Championships. Three of them were in the racing category, while the other was in freestyle.
