As many of our readers have heard, equine photographer, Eric Hardesty, was involved in a horrible truck accident this week during which he broke his neck and suffered a concussion.
We have since learned more details, courtesy of Eric’s niece, Samantha Angermeier. On Monday, July 8th, Eric was returning home from a horse show in Michigan when he lost control of his truck that was pulling a travel trailer. His truck plunged 25 feet off a bridge onto the road below. Watching from behind in a second vehicle was his fiancé, Amy Engelskirger. Thankfully, Eric only suffered a fractured vertebra in his neck, concussion, and numerous cuts and bruises. He is expected to make a full recovery, but will be out of work for several months.
His family has set up a GoFundMe fundraiser, and $2,245 has been raised of the $10,000 goal thus far.
Our prayers go out to Eric and his family.
