A GoFundMe campaign has been launched for a man who was severely injured in a crash on Westside Road last month.
On June 29, Kelowna man Tyler Sheriff and a friend were in a horrific accident in which their truck went backwards over the side of the road.
The friend walked away with just cuts and bruises, but Sheriff was not so lucky.
According to his wife, Sandy, Sheriff broke his left shoulder blade, he crushed his pelvis, broke his hip, twisted his femur and dislocated his knee and wrecked his sciatic nerve. He’s also temporarily on dialysis, as his kidneys began to fail.
Doctors reconstructed his pelvis area, but say it may be a year before Sheriff can walk again. He is expected to spend the next four to six weeks in the hospital.
“Since Tyler is unable to return to work any time soon and they have limited financial coverage, I’m asking for friends, family and his community to help out if they can,” reads the fundraiser’s webpage set up by Lori Jayne.
Any funds raised will go directly to Sheriff and his family.
“His wife Sandy, daughter Summer (4) and son Tyson (16) are going to need a lot of support over the next year,” reads the page.
