A Major League Soccer player, Ryan Hollingshead, was hit by a car while assisting another vehicle that had wrecked on the side of the road. According to FC Dallas, Hollingshead was struck directly by another car and he suffered three cervical vertebrae fractures and will be in a neck brace for approximately 8 weeks.
Luckily, the fractures do not require any surgical procedures, and there is no spinal cord damage. Hollingshead was in the hospital for two days and was released last Sunday. Unfortunately, accidents like these happen daily to emergency crews, construction workers, and even police. It is important to leave space and slow down when cars or people are on the shoulder of the road. The team at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers wish a speedy recovery to the MLS player.
