Mack was in a car accident.
« on: February 27, 2011, 07:39:32 PM »
I'm assuming some of you have heard the news that Mack was in a car accident, but not much else. Well, I got an email with all the details. I'll just quote the main bits here.

Quote
Yesterday, Kyle sustained minor injuries while driving back to school on Highway 1. These injuries include a torn shoulder, small concussion, scrapes on his legs, and potentially severe injury to his left knee. His truck sustained much damage, and his books and other personal effects are destroyed. He is on bed rest for the rest of this week at minimum.

He will have minimal amounts of time to spend on the computer during this time due to the concussion.

I'm thinking it would be a nice gesture to make some sort of NSFCD-themed card to send him (well, email him) while he's on the mend. His friend is the one who sent the email to me, and is acting as a messenger for him. So, would you all be up to helping me put together a card? All you really need to do is submit a picture with some sort of message and/or a signature.

Update: He's actually out of the hospital, but is still on bedrest.
Update 2: Apparently it was a rollover, likely caused by inclement weather conditions.

Current card: [spoiler][/spoiler]

Well, I hope he gets out of there quick. Glad to see that it's mostly minor (as opposed to breaking several bones, etc) but it still sounds pretty painful. Yeah, I wish I had more to say, but...

just, ;______;
I really hate how I've made more than 12,000 posts here. Thankfully this swaying, moving Chandelure makes it all worth it.

Damn, when I first read the email, I thought Mack had gotten into something in the region of Judgement (NSider sage; died in surgery) in terms of seriousness. It's a hell of a relief to see that isn't the case, but that still doesn't mean that he didn't receive just a small bump or anything. That crash could've gone a lot worse for him.

Even though I barely come here anymore, I am completely down for the card when it happens. I haven't talked to him in forever....

Well, it's good to know the injuries aren't severe.
Upon reading the title, I thought it was something beyond horrifying.

But it's great to hear he's doing well.

I wouldn't mind helping out with the card, but I need to get Photoshop reinstalled on my PC since I reformatted it about 7 weeks ago.

Tell him I said that I hope he gets better. He probably will seeing as he's Mack.

By the way, all you need is just some sort of image to post in the thread. I'll handle the assembly of it.

Thank you all for the kind wishes!

I will be sure to send kind words off to him!

Mikoyan: his injuries were a little more severe than a bruise! His leg may not every be quite the same, but we're hoping it is one of those things that affects him when he is 40 and 50 and not a permanent limp!

As for the conditions, he was on a major highway going 100kmh (or so -- 60 mph). The vehicle rolled at least 3 times! We're very greatful that he is still with us!

Everything is like a game, and when the stakes are high, you definitely want to win.  I believe you are playing with enough power to beat this boss >:3

When Mack is hurt, he calls forth forgotten members...

Hope he gets well soon as well.

I know he thinks I hate him but I really don't. Here's wishing him a speedy recovery.

Yeah. From what I've heard, he's currently just on bedrest. He was discharged from the hospital fairly quickly, as his injuries weren't life-threatening.
