LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - The People’s Convoy drove through Lubbock Tuesday to visit a man who was injured on his way home traveling with the convoy.

This is a group of truck drivers and their supporters who travel the country demonstrating against COVID-19 restrictions.

It wasn’t here for a rally or a protest, they were visiting one of their members who is recovering from an injury. The Convoy drove in from Big Spring and took the Loop to get to the Trust Point Rehab facility on North Quaker.

“Bill was in a terrible motorcycle accident on his way home from traveling with The People’s Convoy. He was loved by all on the trip. He has had multiple surgeries and will be in rehab for many months. He is in tough shape but is aware and very appreciative when people he knows are mentioned. He did not ask for this fundraising account nor did anyone in his family. If you cannot donate, please keep him in your prayers. That is equally if not more important.”

Mike Landis was one of the members who drove to Lubbock. “We had to-I had to, I wouldn’t have been able to continue without coming up, and at least-- I didn’t even know he would be able to be out, that was a surprise about an hour before we got here. I got ahold of his nurse and she said ‘no, he’s doing well enough, now we can wheel him out.’ Just super grateful we could come here and show our respects to Bill.”

The website for The People’s Convoy states Bill Clark was involved in a crash while riding his motorcycle. They were riding from Adelanto, CA to Hagerstown, MD.
