Phil Zajicek, who collided with a flatbed truck on Flagstaff last week and lost his arm, remains in an induced coma in ICU.
A GoFundMe page has been established, as his family holds vigil, and deals with the despair of this situation and the future for Phil, his wife, Elizabeth, and two children, Elouise, 4 and Eleanor, 3:
Around lunchtime on Tuesday March 15th, Phil Zajicek met some friends for a quick ride up Flagstaff Mountain in Boulder, Colorado. It’s a climb and descent that he has done hundreds, if not a thousand times, without incident.
On this day however, something went terribly wrong and Phil was involved in a horrific collision with a truck that was traveling uphill. Phil’s left arm was severed instantly, he sustained multiple facial fractures, numerous broken ribs, a badly fractured femur, and a head injury. He remains in the Intensive Care Unit in a medically induced coma. His wife Elizabeth has been at his bedside nearly 24 hours a day since the accident.
Any support you give will help lessen the unimaginable burden that his young family currently faces. Phil was the primary breadwinner for his wonderful family. The medical bills and rehabilitation will be staggering.
Thanks so much for your support. We are Phil’s friends and family and will be providing updates on his condition as often as possible.
