Very close friend and coworker of mine got hit thursday night while on his way in to work. Truck came flying out of a side street and took him out. Hes currently hospitalized with 2 broken legs, broken pelvis and multiple fractures. Hes the sole provider for his household with his soon to be wife, 5 year old son and one on the way due in June. The doctor told him it'll be atleast 3 months before he can start to try and walk again. He just had 2 surgerys and more on the way. Hes a great guy, loyal and trustworthy. Hes one of those people who light the room up when he walks in. If anyone has some spare change laying around, please donate to this man. If not, please share the link. My boss set up a gofundme acct for him and his family to help him get by until he can get back to work. Thank you guys

Thanks again,
Steve

This accident does not show up in the Florida statewide motorcycle crash report.

Where did this accident take place. I would like to verify before deciding.

Agreed. I would like to see a news report or something similar.

First post....
You state you are from NY, say he is a close friend and co worker, while he is from Florida....

I removed the link until evidence is produced.

If anyone feels compelled to donate, PM IlDuce directly.

Thanks

Sorry to hear about it. Does Florida not have mandatory Insurance? If it's the trucks fault that insurance co. should start paying through the nose. I do realize it takes some time. He needs a good lawyer ASAP.

Thank you, it's much appreciated. Anything helps.

As for insurance, that "mandatory" insurance, doesn't really work.. In my profession, I see plenty of vehicles with no insurance, expired tags, etc. I'm sure his family is trying to go through the guys insurance now to get some of this stuff paid for.. He's gone through 2 surgery so far and has another scheduled Tuesday

Thanks again,
Steve
