Many of you know RickeyBoobie
my guitar playing passenger on the bandit run 2011. Well RickeyBoobie (Benny) called me tonight from a hospital in Georgia he is in the ICU there after a car accident. He was really out of it, (he does not know what hospital he is in) and just got his cell charged up to call his family and me. I will post when I find out more information, sorry.
From what I could discern from him. He had some kind of seizure related to an electrolyte imbalance (low potassium and low sodium) this caused him to loose consciousness and drive across 4 lanes of traffic then crash into a building (I think he said a bakery.. not sure.)
He was on his way home from his dads house in North Georgia. He is in the ICU for observation due to the loss of consciousnesses and to correct his electrolytes. (From my experience in the ICU this is not uncommon after this sort of problem)
is "totaled" (kind of sucks because he just got the car 1-2 months ago) but luckily no one was injured, so that is a blessing.
Like I said he was really out of it but told me he mother and sister were going to be there in the morning so I will talk to her then and update here on the post. He really cares about all the runners, and tells me he cant wait until next year. I asked him if it was OK to post here about the accident and his status, and he said that would be alright to let you all know.
I will try to post tomorrow
