NEW SALISBURY, Ind. (WHAS11) -- The Ramsey Volunteer Fire Department in Harrison County set up a road block in New Salisbury, Ind. on Saturday to benefit a fellow firefighter who was injured in an ATV accident over a week ago.
Trevor Whittaker, a 16 year veteran of the fire department, is still in critical condition at UofL Hospital after he collided with a deer around 8 a.m. Friday morning and was thrown from his ATV as it rolled several times.
Whittaker's fellow firefighters say his health is improving, but they would like to help him and his wife Lynn pay for their mounting medical bills.
The Ramsey Volunteer Fire Department is also planning a motorcycle benefit ride in New Salisbury at the Ramsey Fire Dept. Station #2. The 100 mile ride through scenic Southern Indiana will begin at 11 a.m. on October 6, with registration starting at 9:30 a.m. The rider fee is $30 and the passenger fee is $10.
