A motorcycle performer with the Shrine Circus was injured during a performance Tuesday night at the Tyson Event Center.

Ben Venya was in the midst of jumping a 75-foot gap when he over-jumped and hit a wall.

His crash was witnessed by a whole crowd of spectators.

"I'm good, like I said, if it was easy, everyone could do it. That's why there's only a few people in the world that do it and not everyone can get back up after they crash and want to continue with it," said Ben Venya, Las Vegas."

Venya went to the hospital and doctors say that he needed a break for today, but is hoping that he can ride again on Thursday.
