GoFundMe created for hospitalized USPS mail truck driver
TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) – A GoFundMe has been set up to pay for travel and medical expenses as a Wamego man continues to recover in a Kansas City hospital following a head-on three-car collision.
Sarah Fillinger, a family member, says she has started a GoFundMe to help pay for the medical expenses of Shawn Adams and to help support his family as he recovers in a local hospital following a terrifying accident.
On Sunday, Aug. 21, Shawn was headed west on Highway 24 in his mail truck for work when a 2004 Toyota Highlander stopped in the eastbound lane attempting to turn driven by Heather Kolde, 36, of Topeka, was rear-ended by a 2017 Ford Edge driven by Tristyn Boxberger, 17, of Silver Lake.
This impact pushed the Highlander into the westbound lanes, where Shawn’s mail truck and the SUV collided head-on. He was rushed to Stormont Vail Hospital in Topeka with suspected serious injuries while the other two drivers were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
