Evergreen Terrace Drummer Kyle Mims Seriously Injured in Bike Accident
Following on from a regular band practice, EVERGREEN TERRACE drummer Kyle Mims was seriously injured in a horrific bike accident which resulted in Mims breaking his collar bone and requiring everal stitches.
“Unfortunately he will have to have surgery and physical therapy for the next 4-8 weeks. So for obvious reasons he will not be with us on our upcoming headlining shows or the Summer Slob tour with The Acacia Strain. Please wish Kyle a quick recovery. He’s pretty bummed out.
“Caleb James, our long time roadie and drummer for Casey Jones, will be taking over drum duties for now. Check out all dates on our myspace.
“Yesterday, July 2nd, Kyle went back to the doctors and they told him that if he wants to continue to play drums he will have to have surgery. The surgery will cost him $10,000. They require $5,000 up front and the other $5,000 once the surgery is complete. His emergency room bills, tests, ambulance ride, etc. is estimated to be an additional $10,000. He was very close to receiving health insurance thru his work, but unfortunately this happened before it did.”
Kyle’s parents have set up a donation site if you are interested. If not, then please keep him in your thoughts.
