(KNZA)--Members of the Sabetha Fire Department are working to raise funds for their injured Assistant Fire Chief.

According to a GoFundMe put in place on behalf of Gary Elliot, the injuries he incurred in a May 8 semi roll-over crash has left him unable to work indefinitely, with the description of the fundraiser saying the 52-year-old Elliot "has multiple fractured vertebrae's in his neck."

The fundraiser notes that, "a few" of Sabetha's firefighters started the GoFundMe to help Elliot "with bills and living expenses until he can get back on his feet."

According to the report issued by the Kansas Highway Patrol at the time of the wreck, Elliot was eastbound on K-71, east of L Road, when he was distracted and his semi-truck's right tires ran off the south side of the roadway, causing his injuries that sent him to the hospital on that May 8 afternoon.
