Kaylia said her brother has had brain surgery and has some broken bones, but his vital signs are holding.

“My brother wears his heart on his sleeve, but he would give the shirt off his back if someone needed help,” his sister said. “He has three beautiful girls and a shop he was trying to start. He is a certified diesel mechanic. He loved working on vehicles and riding his bike. He loves his family and is very close to all of them. My brother isn’t a saint, but he is a good man. He made a mistake and he didn’t plan for all this to happen.”

The GoFundMe for the injured man is available here.
