Help Matthew And His Long Recovery

Hello I am Erica. Last night around 11 pm my brother Colten and his girlfriend Zoe had stop to help a gentlemen that had hit a bear on highway 53. They stopped to help with hazards on Zoe's vehicle as well as the other gentlemen. Zoe was standing right next to the car when a truck smashed full force into the back of there vehicle with Matthew inside. It immediately lite on fire and flew 50 ft from where it was parked. Colten ran to the car and had to tear off the door to get Matthew out. He put out the fire on Matthews head and got Matthew out as quick as possible. Matthew is in the hospital with 2nd and 3rd degree burns on his head half his face left arm tops of both legs and his right hand. He has a broken right leg as well. Colten sustained 2nd and 3rd degree burns on both arms and his face while he was getting Matthew out of the car. Matthew will have to be in the hospital for up to a month. And colten I believe will be on outpatient care. Colten can Not work. And Alexis Matthews mother will be off work until Matthew is healed up and ready to come home. They will be missing work. They will have medical bills. And now they need to find a new transportation for Colten and Zoe. Any donations will help at this time. Thank you.
