Eugene Shulman Car Accident Medical Fund

Dear Friends of Eugene Shulman, this fundraiser is setup to help offset unexpected medical expenses for my cousin Eugene after a car accident that landed him in the hospital on 2/22/19. As he was making a turn on Rollins and Rt. 45, a Suburban ran a red light and hit his Honda Accord and spun him around. The accident caused his seat-belt to slice through his stomach and an ambulance rushed him to Condell Medical Center where he underwent surgery for his injuries and where he is now recovering.

Here is the ABC 7 Chicago article regarding this accident:

"Avon Township --
Two people were injured in a three-vehicle crash Friday evening in Avon Township in the northern suburbs.

Around 6:40 p.m., deputies were sent to Rollins Road and Route 45 for a traffic accident with injuries, according to the Lake County sheriff's office. When deputies arrived, they found three vehicles with major damage.

A 2002 Chevrolet Suburban driven by a 22-year-old man from Round Lake Beach was heading east on Rollins Road when the traffic light for traffic on the road was red at Route 45, police said. The man disobeyed the red light and entered the intersection, striking a 2005 Honda Accord heading north driven by a 33-year-old man from Grayslake.

The Honda then struck a 2013 Subaru Legacy driven by a 54-year-old man from Third Lake, which was stopped facing west on Rollins Road just east of the intersection, police said.

The Chevrolet driver was reportedly ejected from the SUV and transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Honda was also taken to the same medical center with non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver and a 16-year-old girl passenger of the Subaru were not injured, police said.

The crash is under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff's Office Technical Crash Investigations Unit. "  -  2 injured in multi-vehicle crash in Avon Township 

Eugene's lengthy recovery will prevent him from going back to work over the next few months while his medical bills begin to pile up. All funds will go directly to Eugene to cover his medical expenses.  

It is such a vulnerable thing to ask for help in this way, and to admit that it just can't be done without a community of support. We appreciate you helping out in any way including sharing this your friends and family.
