Community Rallies For Injured Teen After Rollover Crash
SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – A White House teenager is in the fight of his life following a rollover crash that has left him with no feeling from the chest down.
The crash occurred in front of Rod’s Tire on Monday just before 2pm. MAP The driver, Brian Mullins, of White House, who just turned 19 in March, was pinned under a utility van after it had rolled several times.
With the wet road conditions the vehicle left the roadway and impacted a utility pole and began to roll. Springfield Police, who investigated the crash, were not sure how many times the vehicle rolled before it came to rest on it’s side. When the vehicle finally stopped, Mullins was partially pinned underneath. Mullins had suffered a broken neck.
A second occupant did sustain cuts and bruises.
Robertson County EMS and Springfield Fire were on the scene quickly and freed Mullins. He was transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville. Since Monday the teen has already had two surgeries to try to repair the damage but at the moment he has no feeling from his chest down.
Now the community is reaching out to the family with emotional and financial support. A go Go Fund me page to help support the family has been set up and the White House High School football team are having a pancake breakfast this Saturday donating all proceeds to Brian and his family.
Support bracelets are also available for purchase via local businesses to help support the family. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more ways to donate or if you would like to offer the bracelets at your business.
