Well, I’m horribly late to the game with this one, but still…
As some of you may know, Jeff Barker, a designer at Wirestone in Boise, was critically injured in a motorcycle accident caused by a suspected drunk driver trying to evade police. While the news media reported the injuries as non life-threatening, they were serious nonetheless. Here’s a quick rundown:
- Broken Scapula
- Broken Collar Bone
- Broken Mandible
- Several teeth were damaged
- 10 Broken Ribs and punctured lung
- 3 broken vertebrae
- Extensive abrasions and bruising
The folks at Wirestone have been organizing a benefit party to help pay expenses that were not covered by insurance, but more importantly to celebrate the fact that Jeff is alive. And as such, the Broken Barker Benefit was born.
While the details are still sketchy, the date has been confirmed: November 14th.
As soon as I know more, I’ll share those details here.
