dad was in bad wreck on 9/6
My dad was riding his night train labor day around 9pm after he left my house and was involved in a pretty bad wreck here in keller. A guy failed to yield right of way on a left turn and my dad T-boned him.
I showed up at JPS trauma center I have to say the worst night of my life seeing 10 doctors/nurses working on him and the chaplain was there to talk to me.
Looks like he is going to make it, was in an induced sleep state for about 3 weeks during his surgeries.
11 of 12 broken ribs
both broken forearms bones came through the skin/one wrist
one hip socket destroyed and top of femur pushed through socket
broken upper jaw and forehead and eye sockets
luckily no bad internal bleeding but his lungs were pretty bad/bleeding
he was wearing a helmet which saved his life but we still dont know quite how "there" he will be with his mouth wired shut at the moment.
Wear your gear! I always do and always have.
88 gt (waiting to be built when I get my mid-life crisis)
