In 1988, Busey was hurt badly in a motorcycle accident. His head was broken, and he wasn’t even wearing a helmet. Busey had brain surgery to fix the subdural hematoma he got in the accident. After the surgery, he died for a short time. He says that while he was dead, he went to the next world and learned about spiritual things. Doctors thought that the accident and broken skull caused brain damage that would last for life. Busey doesn’t think he has any damage to his brain.
