Please help with Andrew Floied & Ashley Morgan’s medical expenses! An uninsured driver has seriously injured the young couple on Thursday, August 15, 2013. Wearing helmets and riding safety gear, the couple were on their way back from visiting ‘the cross’ on Monteagle Mountain. Twenty-one-year old Andrew had enlisted in the Marines a few months previously. The couple of several years were spending as much time together as possible prior to his leaving for boot camp and were enjoying their leisurely ride. A woman driving on a three times revoked license ran through a flashing red traffic light and broadsided their motorcycle without ever slowing or braking. Ashley was thrown from the motorcycle and landed in a post office parking lot. Andrew was pinned between the motorcycle and the car. Critical, both of them were airlifted to Erlanger Medical Center to the trauma unit. Ashley broke her left femur, tibia, and fibula and sustained multiple other serious injuries. Andrew broke his left humerus, tibia, fibula, shattered his pelvis, punctured his lung, and has multiple other serious injuries. By the grace of God, neither suffered any apparent brain injury thus far. Both are still in critical condition. Andrew is facing multiple more surgeries. Both are looking at months of their lives snatched away as they fight to recover from this tragedy. Between medical bills, missed work, and all the other expenses these two and their families are facing, the costs are already staggering. The two helicopter rides alone are expected to be over $50,000. Andrew has health insurance that will help with some of his expenses. Ashley does not. She graduated from nursing school as an LPN earlier this year, has been working PRN while searching for a full time job. The woman who hit them had no insurance. Andrew had minimum insurance on his motorcycle and it isn’t clear yet how much of Ashley’s bills, if any, will be covered.
I am Andrew’s aunt (Jennifer’s sister) and love these two kids. I am so frustrated that someone has done this to them by pure carelessness. Besides all the emotional and physical ailments, they and their families are incurring so much financial burden already during this time between medical, travel, time off work, etc. that giving to them financially and establishing a way for others to ease that strain seemed a small thing for me to do. Please help and pray for these two good kids/young adults who are now facing a very different future than the ones they had chosen, dreamed of, and worked so hard to achieve. For locals who would like to donate directly rather than via online, please drop off an envelope with FOR ANDREW & ASHLEY with whatever you can give or a check made out to Andrew Floied or Ashley Morgan at Dr. Jay Trussler's office on Interstate Drive or at Toliver's Pawn Shop on the square in Manchester. Please pray for Andrew, Ashley, and their families and help financially as you can. Thank you with all my heart, and I know Andrew, Ashley, and their families feel the same. God bless.
