Family Injured at Castro Valley Trader Joe's

On Thursday, 9/15/22, the unimaginable happened when a car crashed into Trader Joe's in Castro Valley. Unfortunately, at the time of the crash, Oz Ledesma and his two kids were paying at the cash register. Oz and his 5-year-old son were struck by the car and sustained injuries. Thankfully Oz's 11-year-old daughter was unharmed and witnessed the event. However, she's struggling to cope with processing the accident. Oz suffered injuries to both his legs causing him to be immobile. His son also broke bones in his pelvis, shoulder, and hip, requiring emergency surgery, placing three pins to stabilize his hip. In addition, he had severe tire burns to his thigh, potentially requiring plastic surgery. As you can imagine, this trauma will require extensive physical therapy for the foreseeable future and may require additional surgeries in the months to come.

This has been a nightmare for the Ledesma family. I decided to set up this GoFundMe to alleviate the financial burden this event has caused. Oz is currently in between jobs and doesn't know when he will be able to seek employment and is now unable to accept employment offers. His wife doesn't know how and when she will return to work as she's caring for her husband and son. I've known the Ledesma family for over 20 years, and Oz is the type of man that will give you the shirt off his back. Let's pay it forward and help the Ledesma's during their time of need.
