Truck Driver In Major Truck Accident

Hello, My name is Jade Heywood and I am here to ask for your help !

channel 7 interview  this is the footage of the accident.

My brother in law Mitch Menna was in a major truck accident on the ring road in Melbourne Tuesday 31st of October 2017.Mitch's truck was the stationary vehicle carrying temporary fencing, as the truck slams into the back trapping him behind the wheel then pushing his vehicle into the other truck in front.

His leg is broken in 5 places, rods going down through bones and frames built on the outside of his leg. Blood clots were found in his lung with also minor face and body injuries. He's also been given blood transfusions to help with the recovery. He has had one surgery and one on the way, waiting for swelling to go down.
He is a hard working young man that has got his wife and his 4 beautiful children, that have to travel from Clifton Springs(Geelong vic) to Melbourne(vic) to visit him. (hour and a half distance) until he gets transferred to Epworth hospital Geelong.
 He owns the temporary fencing business and is struggling to keep it going, while in a hospital bed and keeping the family going too. As he is the main income earner financial assistance is needed during this recovery is time to pay for rent, food and other necessities. He isn't the type to ask for help, so any help we can get would be greatly appreciated.
