“We witnessed an accident at Pacific Coast Highway and Entrada tonight [August 8]. It appears that a motorcyclist was trapped under an SUV,” a resident wrote, and added, “it looked bad.”
It was bad. Palisades U.S. Postal Mail Carrier Bryan Ramirez was on his way home from work on Tuesday.
A resident Elizabeth, who has created a gofundme page for him wrote, “A SUV made an illegal U-turn and ran over Bryan on his motorcycle.
“Unfortunately, his right leg was pinned against two vehicles. His leg will have to be amputated from the knee down. He walks for a living, is a mail carrier, this man’s life has changed forever.”
Elizabeth said, “I ask from the bottom of my heart to help with whatever you can, to help cover his bills that he won’t be able to cover because of this tragic accident, so as he recovers, his focus can be on getting better.”
After posting the notice on Nextdoor, Postal worker Julie Garcia wrote “Bryan is my co-worker… he has been delivering mail to residents in the El Medio Bluffs for about two years now. I’m sure his customers think as highly of him as we do at the Post Office! Please consider making a contribution.”
Another person on Nextdoor wrote: “This is so horrible thank you for sharing the Gofundme page. This is horrific.”
A reader sent it to CTN and wrote “this is the accident we witnessed. Please post on CTN.”
