SK Tommy O'Neal

I race go karts for a hobby and this past Sunday 9/15/19, I was in a pretty bad karting accident. I broke my clavicle, my scapula, and 4 ribs. This was all on the left side of my body. I was taken to the hospital in Fort Atkinson then transferee to St. Mary’s trauma hospital in Madison Wisconsin because I had a small bruise on my spleen and a very small cut on one of my lungs. Both the spleen and lung are better but the bones are going to take a little longer to heal. On the mend. Thanks for your prayers!
