GoFundMe seeks donations to help in recovery following “near-fatal” crash

A fundraising effort is underway to help an area resident who was injured in a crash earlier this month.

According to a GoFundMe created by his mother, Jacob Dean was in a near fatal car accident at Mason Road and Kern Road on April 12th when he was hit head-on by another driver who crossed the middle lane at 60 mph.

After an hour and a half extraction effort, Dean was taken by Survival Flight to U of M Hospital in Ann Arbor. Because he sustained multiple injuries, he required multiple surgeries and is facing many weeks or months of extensive inpatient rehabilitation to learn how to walk again. 

“This will be one of Jacob’s most difficult journeys,” said Melissa Dean about her son. “Jacob loves and his passion has always been for skateboarding, which at this time we are unsure if he will ever skate again.  Jacob has a long road to recovery ahead of him.  The things we take for granted everyday will be life changing for him on learning to walk again as well as many other things.  Jacob is that guy that would give you the shirt off his back.  We are asking for prayers and any donations to help aid in his recovery, medical equipment, house alterations, mounting medical bills, on top of his normal monthly bills as he will not be able to work in his recovery.”

The GoFundMe has set a $30,000 goal and has raised approximately $3,400 so far.
