Petersburg Walk to Benefit Walrath Family

Two communities are coming together in support of a Lubbock man who is still recovering after being run over twice.

According to University Medical Center, Brett Walrath's has been upgraded to serious condition. He has been in critical condition since the accident happened in late August.

Walrath was hit while riding his bike along the access road of South Loop 289. Police say a vehicle hit Walrath and then fled the scene. Another vehicle hit Walrath while trying to avoid the crowd that gathered following the first collision. The first driver was arrested and charged with intoxication assault.

To help pay for Walrath's medical bills, the Petersburg High School Student Council is sponsoring a walk. The event takes place in Petersburg at the corner of Avenue M and West 1st Street starting at 10am Saturday.

More than 100 participants from Lubbock and Petersburg are expected to attend.
