Easton Gregory works as a sales consultant here at Kingston Nissan. This 23-year-old is one of our most popular consultants because of how much he enjoys dealing with people and making them happy. Some of his favorite things include Die Hard, SportsCenter and vacationing, particularly in Florida.
On Monday June 25, Easton was on his way to a basketball game in Red Hook with his 2 best friends after work when they got into a car accident where he took the entire impact of the collision. He was rushed to Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital in Poughkeepsie where he was non-responsive and got immediately intubated.
His injuries and after effects from the accident include:
- 12 broken ribs
- Collapsed lungs
- Numerous perforations
- Lacerated liver
- Damaged pancreas
Thankfully, Easton was wearing his seatbelt even though he was in the backseat. However, the critical nature of the accident caused him to need to be moved to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla via medevac on July 2nd. Ever since then, he’s still in the Westchester Trauma Center where he has been on a ventilator, ECMO & dialysis while receiving plating for his broken ribs plated and numerous blood transfusions.
Because this center is 2 hours from their home, Easton’s parents Jerome & Karen Gregory have had to rent an apartment in Rye NY to remain as close as possible to their son during his time of need.
There is currently a GoFundMe raising money for Easton & his family that’s met almost half its goal. We hope you can give the Gregorys your support in their time of need.
11/1/2018: Easton is home and working on healing. He still has a long recovery with tons of physical therapy and doctor’s appointments, but he is on the mend.
8/27/2018: Easton has been moved to a rehabilitation center in NJ to continue healing. His condition has improved greatly. The event at Blackthorne had a great turn out! The family was blown away by everyones generosity. Big Sister and the Glenn Young Band put on great shows. Easton would have loved it!! He still has a LONG road ahead of him, but has made leaps and bounds.Donate to Easton's GoFundMe
