On the evening of October 2, Ben suffered numerous serious injuries when a car collided with his motorcycle in South Pasadena. The driver of the car was arrested at the scene for suspicion of DUI. Ben, who remains hospitalized, is receiving advanced medical care including surgeries. Extensive rehabilitation will be necessary.
As you may know, Ben and Miranda are the owners of Snake Oil Provisions. As self-employed retail owners, their livelihood is significantly impacted by their inability to fully manage and run their shop. SOP is driven substantially by Ben's charismatic persona on social media platforms. There remains a long road ahead for Ben's healing and some return to normalcy with extensive medical expenses. All of the proceeds from this fundraiser will be provided directly to Ben and Miranda to help cover medical costs and loss of potential income with their inability to fully run Snake Oil Provisions.
