Rich Meyers is the Carolina Livery Bus Driver who was injured in the Durham Gas Explosion on April 10, 2019. The bus was pictured in almost every shot as the news was being broadcast. The bus he was driving had just approached its shuttle stop which was directly across the street from the buildings which were leaking gas, approximately 50 feet from the blast. Rich sustained brain trauma with severe concussion issues, neck and upper back trauma, and also numerous head, neck and facial lacerations when all of the bus windows blew out from the intense force. The left side of his head, face, and arm continue to release small pieces of glass.

Recovery may take up to six months according to his medical providers. Rich stated,  "I am very fortunate to be alive. The angels of protection I pray for each morning really did their job. If not for them I would not be here!" He is getting through this traumatic, emotional and physical journey with the support of faith, family and friends. Since the explosion he has incurred many added expenses, as well as a reduction in income. If you would like to contribute, our family would be greatly appreciative of your help in this challenging time.

Many thanks to all who continue to pray and support our family.
