Fund set up for car crash victim
A charitable fund has been set up at US Bank to help cover the medical expenses of Gresham resident Kenon Everts, 19, who was involved in a two-car collision east of Otis on Friday, Oct. 14.
Anyone interested in helping with medical expenses can make donations to the 'Kenon Everts Charitable Fund' at any US Bank branch.
After two brain operations and one heart surgery, Everts is still in critical condition at Portland's Legacy Emanuel Medical Center. He is on life support and has sustained brain injuries as well as a fractured pelvis and partially collapsed lung.
A cashier at Gresham's 7-Eleven on Kane Avenue and Division Street, Everts was on his way to the Oregon coast when he lost control of his 1998 Volkswagen Cabrio and was hit by a 1999 Chrysler Concord.
All other passengers suffered non-life threatening injuries.
