On July 11th, 2022, Dean, Linh, Adam, and Ashley, were involved in a head-on collision while driving from Calgary to Whistler for their family vacation.
The other driver - coming from oncoming traffic - had crossed the centre line and collided with Dean and his family.
Dean suffered a right hip dislocation, broken bones in his arm, collapsed lungs, and rib fractures.
My Linh - who was driving - suffered spinal, chest, and foot fractures, and collapsed lungs. In addition, she received metal plate implants in her hips.
Their 13-year-old son, Adam, suffered a deep cut to his scalp, fractured and avulsed teeth, left nasal bone fracture, and chest injuries.
Their 11-year-old daughter, Ashley, suffered lung, spleen, and liver injuries, cuts to her scalp, and a left shoulder joint fracture.
After being transported back to Calgary, Adam and Ashley are recovering at home with their relatives, while Dean and Linh reside at a Calgary rehabilitation center.
As some may know, they have been running a family restaurant in Calgary for over ten years and have always been generous and hard-working business owners. Not only that, Dean and Linh are a substantial contributing factor to Calgary's communities. The restaurant is their only source of income, and it cannot operate without either Dean or Linh. Unfortunately, it will take time for them to recover before they can get back on their feet again to run the business.
As we continue to receive updates, donations to this page will help fund medical and business expenses while they spend all the time they need to recover. Any, and all, contributions are greatly appreciated.
