Dean McDermott Hospitalized with Punctured Lung After Motorcycle Crash

Tori Spelling's daredevil husband Dean McDermott is in hospital after sustaining a punctured, collapsed lung in a dirt bike accident.

"He's expected to make a full recovery," says Spelling's publicist. "He will remain in ICU for a few more days."

"Thanks for the well wishes," McDermott told fans on his Twitter page. "A collapsed lung is no fun, and is a lengthy heal. Feeling pretty bad today. Day 2 is always the worst."

This is the second motorcycle mishap for McDermott this year. The 43-year-old fractured his shoulder in January.

He agreed to give up professional racing and only ride recreationally following his first injury. This time Spelling hopes he stops riding altogether.

"He's in a lot of pain," she says. "He's taking this as a sign and realizing family is too important to risk his life."

"His friend called me and said he was in the ER," she recalls. "He didn't want to scare me so he just said he had a crash and that they were X-raying him."

"At first I was mad... I was pissed that he was out biking and crashed. But when I showed up and saw him lying there, and they told me they were admitting him to ICU with a collapsed lung, my heart dropped.."

The couple, married since 2006, has two children: 3-year-old Liam and 2-year-old Stella.
