Friends have set up a benefit fundraiser to help the family of a Smyer man who died Monday.
22-year-old John Gonzales passed away at UMC from injuries sustained in a dirt bike accident on Saturday.
Police say he and 17-year-old Zachary Craven were riding a dirt bike at FM 2378 and Filly Road when they hit the back of Kubota Utility Vehicle.
Both men were thrown from the bike and taken to the hospital shortly afterwards. Craven is now in satisfactory condition.
The Smyer community is hosting a car wash on Thursday to help pay for the Gonzales family's funeral expenses. The fundraiser will take place at Rick's Tire Warehouse near Slide and 80th Street from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Friends have also set up an account at Prosperity Bank in John Gonzales' name. If you would like to donate, you can do so at any Prosperity Bank or from the following webpage: www.wepay.com/donations/300962606
