Almost one million Trek bikes are being recalled in the United States and Canada after an injury that left one rider paralyzed.

Included in the recall are 900,000 bikes in the U.S., and 98,000 sold in Canada, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. A quick-release lever on the bike's front-wheel hub can come into contact with the front disc brake assembly, resulting in either complete wheel separation or the wheel coming to an instant stop.

Three accidents were reported, and Trek said all included injuries, some to the face, a fractured wrist and one that resulted in the rider becoming a permanent quadriplegic.
