He hit a patch of ice early morning and when tried to regain control, flipped his truck on it's roof and rolled down an 18 foot embankment stopping mere feet from the river.
Luckily another driver was behind him and witnessed the accident, otherwise Dan may have never received help.
Despite wearing a seat belt, Dan suffered 7 broken vertabae in his neck and back, with an 8mm displacement in his T6 as well as a broken sturnum. He will undergo surgery on March 15th to fuse his neck and is expected to be off work for at least 3 months with a long recovery ahead of him.
He's currently in the ICU at Midland Hospital.
Dan is blessed that he got health insurance a month ago, but the compounding expenses of buying a new vehicle, lost wages from being unable to work, etc are going to add up quickly.
Dan is a great guy who often endures the severe weather as contracted tree trimmer for Consumer's Energy, and a father of two, ages 14 and 6. With only his wife's income while he recovers, please consider helping the Kingry family offset some of the costs that he's going to endure during the long road ahead of him.
