On the evening of May 22, our friend and moto sister, Kelly Yun, was involved in a motorcycle accident that will forever change her life. She was riding in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in broad daylight when she was struck in an intersection by an SUV, just a few miles from her destination, crushing her leg between the bike and vehicle.
While there is still a pending investigation into the cause and details of the accident, Kelly was rushed to the nearest hospital where part of her leg was immediately amputated. The doctors and paramedics worked quickly to stabilize her, fortunately, her injuries other than her leg were treatable.
Kelly’s state is improving, but she still has a long way to go before she can return to her normal life. We are heartbroken that we are unable to support her in person on the long journey ahead, but we know our girl is strong and capable of overcoming this obstacle and come out the other side even more enlivened and ready for life than before.
Kelly impresses everyone with her strong spirit and beaming personality, especially in the aftermath of this accident. We would like to ask our friends and family to support her through this difficult time. She will be in and out of hospitals and unable to work for the next few months at least, which is a huge financial burden to anyone. Adapting to this life change and upcoming physical therapy to regain mobility is enough, and we want to make sure Kelly and her family are taken care of during this time.
