Lorenzo and son are still recovering at Harborview Medical Center. Lorenzo’s brother – who also works at Angelo’s – said that he has shown some movement in his left side and wiggled his fingers. He has still not awakened though. His 7-year old son is not paralyzed, despite what some Seattle-area media has reported. His son is doing okay. The 15-year old girl who crashed into them is suspected of driving under the influence. Here’s more info from the GoFundMe page:
Many of you know Lorenzo from Angelo’s. Unfortunately, he and his son were involved in a serious car accident on Monday. We set up a Go Fund Me to help ease the financial strain being put on his family so that they can focus on giving Lorenzo and Xavier all of the emotional support they need. Lorenzo’s family and the Ricci family thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your prayers for the full recovery of Lorenzo and his son. Lorenzo is a beloved, hardworking father who was seriously injured in a car accident with his son on Monday evening in Burien. The two are at Harborview and we are praying for their full recovery. On Monday evening they were broadsided by a 15-year-old female who was possibly intoxicated and ran a red light. The impact of the crash split Lorenzo’s pickup truck in half and thedamages were devastating. The Angelo’s Family are trying to raise money for his family to help pay for medical bills and other expenses. Lorenzo is a cook and busser at Angelo’s of Burien and is a prized member of the Angelo’s family. On behalf of all of his family, friends, and coworkers we ask that you please donate anything you can spare to help ease the financial strain being put on his family so that they can focus on giving Lorenzo and Xavier all of the emotional support they need. There will be a fundraiser held at Angelo’s where a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to the family as well. The date of that is TBD but we will update it here. “Your continued thoughts and prayers are appreciated!”
