7/1/2008 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dave Matthews' sax player has been seriously injured in an ATV accident.

46-year-old LeRoi Moore was on a break between concerts when he was injured riding the rig at his farm outside Charlottesville, VA. He was transported to UVA Medical Center, where he's listed in fair condition.

A statement on the band's website said "Please join us all in wishing LeRoi a speedy and complete recovery."

Jeff Coffin, saxophonist of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, will sit in with the band while he recovers.

Which is it? Is he "seriously" hurt? or in "fair condition"? They aren't the same!

Best wishes to LeRoi! He'll be missed when I see DMB in a month or so.

Kim -- You can be in fair condition and seriously hurt. Condition generally describes improvement in condition and likelihood that the patient will continue to improve. What "fair condition" means is that he has not shown any decline in condition and it is unlikely that he will experience a decline in condition, but he is still being watched just in case.

I used to work for a neurosurgeon. ATVs paid the bills. The doc said that he had seen a study that showed you have a 95% chance of injury and a something like 80% of the injuries require a hospital visit.

This seriously sucks. DMB has been hit with some bad luck the past few months (Iz lost his house in a fire not too long ago). Thoughts and wishes to everyone.

And what the he** is with the comments from RightsForFathers and Slim Pickins?! Seriously . . .

Don't get me wrong here. LeRoi is a great player, but I hope he still has a job after Coffin steps in!
