Update on TC Drake

Former Kentucky tight end is now in serious condition at University of Louisville hospital following a car accident last night.  According to WLKY, Drake was riding his motorcycle without a helmet when a woman turned left into his lane and he collided with her passenger side door.  The Twitter account @TrevMPoint1, which says he is Drake’s brother, says the former Kentucky player fractured his skull in two places and had all of his teeth knocked out, but is responding to medicine.  The woman who hit him has been charged with first degree assault and operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Please continue to keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.

    Thoughts and prayers go out to Drake and his family. Lesson here is that if you drink and drive, you’re going to hurt someone (and you’re an idiot). Wear a helmet on a motorcycle. This stuff is avoidable.

    Hopefully he pulls through! Just remember, WEAR YOUR HELMET…odds are, he still would have been hurt, but not as bad as he currently is. And hopefully that girl gets the book thrown at her! Save a life, call a cab!

    You might want to refer to this Rees person at least once before you go using their last name as a reference in the article. Readers have no idea who Reed is.

    TC does NOT have a brother.

    He does have three sisters.

    So the twitter account may be a close friend.

    Did he ever step onto the football field without a helmet? Probably not. Then why risk your life riding a motorcycle with no helmet? Hope he has a good recovery. He is in my thoughts.
