On the evening of 12/17, Darren was involved in an automobile vs pedestrian accident. While he was carrying a heavy item for someone across the road he was struck by a vehicle.
Darren is currently in CCU at Mayo Hospital Eau Claire with 2 fractures in his neck (his top and bottom neck vertebrae), multiple fractures in his left tibia, a large laceration on his head requiring around 30 stitches and a drain for fluids on his brain. He will be heading into surgery for his leg in the afternoon of 12/18, and the doctors are hoping to avoid surgery on his neck at this time. Although he is in a lot of pain, Darren is in good spirits and continues to carry his larger than life sense of humor with him.
As more information becomes available we will keep the caring bridge site updated, allowing Lisa (who is going in for her own surgery on 12/18) and Jane & Anne time to rest and help Darren heal.
