Community rallies around motorcycle crash survivor and raises money for medical bills

D’IBERVILLE, Miss. (WLOX) – Family and friends gathered on Saturday to hold a benefit for a wreck survivor.

Nathan Savoie was hit head-on by a truck where he was riding his motorbike in March, and many doctors expected him to die from his injuries.

However, Nathan miraculously survived.

Saturday’s benefit was set up to help pay off some medical debt to help Nathan on the road to recovery. A silent auction and raffles for a trip to Belize were organized.

Nathan’s family says the community outreach has been overwhelming.

“I am overwhelmed by the love and support from this community,” said Karen Savoie, Nathan’s mother. “I am overwhelmed with the love and support from this community, my family and my friends. I cannot thank everyone enough for all the wonderful love and support they have given us.

“I can’t believe how many people brought all these items to buy and the trip to Belize,” Nathan’s aunt Sheri Constant said. “There are so many things the community can help us with and everyone came out and helped out.”

The family says they would like to thank the first responders who showed up to the scene the day of the crash.
