Our Amtrak co-worker and friend, John Thornton was in a serious bike accident on Roosevelt Boulvard while coming into work on Sunday, October 7th.  He was struck by a car and has sustained serious injuries.  He is currently in ICU at Jefferson Torresdale with 2 collapsed lungs, a broken femur, multiple broken ribs, a broken cheekbone,  and contusions on his brain and heart. His condition is critical but stable.  He is married with 2 little girls and has just purchased a home.  Please help us raise money to help his family while he is out of work recovering from this terrible accident.
