A Fallen Rider Needs our SupportTuesday, November 14, 2006 | 12:15 PM
We just received this note from Live Nation’s Senior Director of Supercross, Todd Jendro:
"On Sunday, October 29, 2006 my riding partner Andy Chevalier was critically injured while riding at Sunset Ridge MX race track in Walnut, Illinois. Andy went over the bars and landed head-first and then the bike landed on him. When the EMTs reached Andy, he was unconscious but breathing. Andy was then airlifted to St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, IL. He has suffered severe head trauma along with a bruised lung and spleen. Andy has been unconscious and in a coma since the crash and is still currently in Neurological Intensive Care at St. Francis. Andy's wife Denise has been at his side since the crash and his two children, Kylie, 8, and Jack, 6, are staying with friends and relatives while their mother is in Peoria with their father.
"Andy has insurance for most of his medical bills but NO short or long-term disability. Andy's wife receives his last paycheck this week and has depleted all of their money in the bank from savings. As a stay at home mom with two kids, she will be facing the hard facts of the insurance system, financial decisions, mortgage payments and bill collectors. I have arranged a fund set up in his name.
