On Wednesday, Pleasant Grove singer-guitarist Bret Egner was involved in a bicycle accident near Red River in Austin, when he swerved to avoid two jaywalking pedestrians and hit the pavement. Sadly, the pedestrians he swerved to avoid didn't offer help.
Egner went into surgery today to repair a shattered collarbone, but without insurance he and his wife need some help with bills. You can chip in here to give a little support.
With all his friends in the two cities, that shouldn't be a problem.
