Puck, David Rainey

Maybe he would have been better off sticking to his bike.

David Rainey, much better known as Puck from The Real World's seminal San Francisco season, remains hospitalized and unable to speak after getting into a serious car crash with 8-year-old son Bogart in San Diego last Friday.

"The initial fear was that Bogart was in worse shape and may not live, but he has fully recovered and back home as of today," rep Michael Martin tells E! News.

"Puck is in much worse shape and still in the hospital and can't even speak."

According to Martin's blog, Puck has "had several surgeries most prominently for his neck."

So what happened?

"It was a solo rollover crash," California Highway Patrol Officer Ray Scheidnes tells E! News. "The vehicle went off the roadway and ended up going over the side of the road."

It's still unclear what injuries Bogart suffered in the crash, though he reportedly bruised several major organs.

The incident took place around 9:30 p.m., when the duo was on a father-son fishing trip. There's no official word on the exact nature of Rainey's injuries or what caused the crash to begin with. Martin said he couldn't confirm or deny reports that Rainey was under the influence at the time of the crash.

"Our prayers and best wishes are for Puck and his family that he makes a full recovery as well," Martin said.
