Maybe you can help these MTF members

Look here on the MTF for info about Kevin and Deb's collision if you hadn't heard. Maybe you hadn't met them but had communicated online with them like many of us do. Their daughter was on another bike in the same group. Serious injuries, completely preventable, just a damn shame. $$ circumstances are dire as well. A link to contribute is in the MTF thread along with all the other details.

Here's the post describing Kevin & Deb's accident.

Aside from a few comments in the "Wizard's Wild Weekend" thread, most of you may not have seen anything about Kevin & Deborah Healey's tragic accident on Friday on the way to Cedar Key. Bottom line...they survived the crash and were flown by helicopters to Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne, Florida. Except for their injuries, they are OK and will recover. Kevin lost his left leg below the knee in the crash, and Deborah suffered a compound fracture below the left knee. The surgeons are hoping to save her leg.

Kevin was leading a group of about 14 bikes northbound on US 441 north of Yeehaw Junction, and were turning left onto Canoe Creek Road in Kenansville when a cager attempted to pass the whole column of bikes at a very high rate of speed in a no-passing zone. Kevin was just starting his left turn when the car hit his bike, throwing Kevin, Deborah, the bike, and luggage into the air. The bike exploded and burned and is a total loss. Dan Barnett, riding sweep, is knowledgeable in first aid and applied a tourniquet to Kevin's leg and probably saved his life. Dan met with us Saturday morning in Cedar Key to provide an update on their condition and the details of the accident. The Kenansville Fire Dept is a short distance from the accident site, so I understand that Paramedics or EMT's were on the scene quickly.

As of Saturday morning, Deborah was awake and lucid. Kevin was heavily sedated, and, although able to breathe on his own, was on a ventilator. For security reasons, the hospital operator does not have the names or room numbers of trauma patients, especially while they are still in intensive care, but the address and phone number of the hospital may be useful in a few days:

Holmes Regional Medical Center
1350 S Hickory St
Melbourne, FL 32901
321-434-7000

Here's the link to the donation page.

This could have happened to any of us, whether you're riding in a group or by yourself.

Well I'm glad this wasn't rejected here. After reading the rules about crash info I wasn't entirely sure it would be. That's why my post was so sparse, so anyone really interested would have to look where I suggested. Give what you can, they're gonna need it!

He was apparently cited at the scene as the responsible driver.
