The Cordele Dispatch reports that friends of Reicho Harvey, who was the victim in a freak accident just weeks ago, are raising funds to help pay for his medical bills.

Harvey was reportedly riding in the backseat of his sister's car last month when a tree fell across the vehicle, sending Harvey to the hospital with head trauma.

The 19-year-old has no health insurance and friends have been trying to help him with medical expenses.

A benefit dance will feature the Soul Shakerz, and the Mathis Brothers, on August 10th at the Cordele Lions Club.

Doors for the event will open at 6:30 PM and the first band is scheduled to hit the stage at 7:30 PM.
