After being run over by a burglar, a rockstar was seriously injured.
After being injured during a robbery in Texas in October, Corey Dill, a member of the indie rock band Brother Moses, is still recovering.
Dill was hospitalized for several weeks after being run over by the suspects who robbed the band’s tour vehicle, leaving him severely injured.
The incident happened on October 31st.
Dill and his bandmates were returning to the Deep Ellum Art Co. from a dinner break before their show on January 19 when they noticed someone leaving their vehicle, according to James Lockhart, the band’s singer.
Dill and his bandmates then started chasing the suspect, with Dill eventually collapsing.
The suspect was able to flee in a getaway car, which collided with Dill.
“We can tell from security footage that the back right tire of that truck went over Corey as it left,” Lockhart said.
“I don’t remember anything after that,” Dill told News Nation USA, “like if I grabbed him or tried to wrestle him out.” “In my mind, he got to the passenger door as he was scooting in and that’s kind of the end of what I remember until I’m laying on the ground a few moments later.”
Lockhart said Dill suffered a fractured pelvis, a fractured clavicle, “internal damage in his pelvic area… multiple facial fractures to his temporal bone, his nose, underneath his teeth, and he crushed his sinus cavity” in a statement released shortly after the incident. He was taken to Baylor Medical Center, where he underwent multiple surgeries, including one to install a metal brace.
He spent 15 days in the hospital before being released in early November, though Dill said he still has weeks of recovery ahead of him.
Before he can walk again, the musician says he will have to undergo more surgeries and rehab.
A GoFundMe page was set up in the aftermath of the tragedy to help pay for Dill’s extensive medical bills.
The page has nearly reached its (dollar)100,000 goal.
“The support and all the love I received was incredible,” Dill said of the outpouring of love, “especially the first few days when I didn’t have my phone and my wife read things like comments and messages.”
That was very encouraging and uplifting to me.
It’s amazing how many people were rooting for me.”
