Blockbuster Worker Critically Injured In Motorcycle Wreck

9 days ago, Matthew Casey of Longview was critically injured in a motorcyle accident. Matthew was coming home from work at the Blockbuster on High street when he ran into the back of a parked vehicle. He was not wearing a helmet and has been in a coma ever since the accident.

Matthew does not have insurance.   His co-workers at Blockbuster have started a fund to help his family pay the hospital bills.

"Thank God for these things and for the prayers that people have put out for Matt and that's the main thing, people praying for Matt.  God's Will will be done," says Matthew's dad Gary.

If you would like to make a donation, a fund has been opened at the Bank One in Longview. The account is in care of Amber Fortner or Gary Casey.
