On December 16th, 2019, Chris Lowe, his fiancé Rachelle Vannier and their 9 month old son Kingsley were shopping at Ross when they struck by a van inside the store. Chris was hit first and thrown several feet, while Rachelle held Kingsley tightly as she was struck by the van and pushed more than 30 feet into the center of the store.
Thankfully Rachelle and Kingsley were only left with minor injuries. Chris however, suffered from a severely broken leg. Chris is having surgery to repair the extensive damage done to his leg and knee. The doctors expect Chris will have a very long recovery.
Chris works as a security officer at Ross but was not on the clock when this incident occurred, so he is not covered under L&I. Chris will likely be unable to work for several months as he recovers and while Rachelle wasn’t seriously injured she had only just started at her new job as her previous workplace undergoes major construction repairs from another vehicle running into it, as well.
I am reaching out to the community in hopes that we can all help relieve some of their financial concerns as they heal emotionally, physically, and psychologically from this horrible accident. It is especially hard with the holidays being here and losing a source of income for at least the next several months while Chris heals.
If you are able to help, I know they would all very much appreciate it.
