Many of us know Jerry72 here on the forums.

On 15 Sept he was involved in a head on collision the results being from the other driver who was drunk and has been arrested.

Though I didn't set up the GoFundMe account it was sent to me and I asked LOR Admins for their permission to post it here. (granted)

I wont get into his family but a little background is posted on the GoFundMe account and it is heartbreaking at best.

For anyone that reads this that received face sequences from me and offered to donate to me, this would be perfect. I and many others here consider Jerry a friend.

I am sure any contributions will be greatly appreciated.

Sorry I mis typed. The accident happened on 15 Sept not 19.

No edit button to fix it.

Also it turns out that the guy had no insurance and suspended license. Go figure. I imagine he's probably a repeat offender that should be locked up before he takes someone out for good.

Glad to see that you are functional enough to be here on the forum!  My best wishes for your recovery.

Having been hit by a drunk when I was 16, I have NO sympathy for them.  They belong under the jail... :)

Hang in there Jerry, I know exactly what you are going to go through. Back in 2005 I was in a IED explosion in Iraq, both legs broken, broken left arm, crushed pelvis and shot three times. It is a long road to recovery but you will get there. We are all with you brotha.

It sucks that this happened to you Jerry, but it is good to know that your babies still have thier daddy.

Be nice to your nurses, they can make a bad day better. 👩‍⚕️😉

Hope you have a speedy recovery.
