On July 21st, a truck heading south onto Hill Street from Main Street failed to yield and turned in front of a motorcycle, according to the Riverton Police Department. The family has identified the motorcycle rider as Riverton resident Brian Waits.
During the course of the wreck, the motorcycle’s gas tank was punctured which covered Brian in gasoline and ignited, his family shared. “He has a very long road ahead, 56% of his body is burnt, multiple broken bones, a punctured lung, and a lacerated kidney.”
Brian was taken to a burn center where he will likely be for a few months, according to the latest family update. A GoFundMe has been started to help cover bills and travel.
The account set up by the family can be found by clicking here. Local donations can also be made at any of the Atlantic City Federal Credit Unions. The account is under Brian Waits. A BBQ and cornhole tournament is also being organized at the Union Bar in Hudson. No date has been confirmed yet, but we will share an update as soon as possible.
