Lily Snyder Car Accident, Death – Jody Gregory, a teacher in Hillsborough, had her world turned upside down when her daughter, who was 17 years old at the time, was involved in a catastrophic car accident in Pennsylvania. In response, a fundraising effort was formed for Jody Gregory. According to a GoFundMe account that was put up for the family by Gregory’s friend Teresa Klein, the accident took place on June 10 while Lily Snyder was riding as a passenger in the backseat of a vehicle that rolled many times and ejected her from the vehicle. Gregory’s buddy was trying to help raise money for Lily Snyder’s family.
Snyder was transported by helicopter to the Lehigh Valley Trauma Center, where he was treated for a life-threatening head injury and admitted to the critical care unit, where he was placed on a ventilator and put into a medically induced coma. Lily was released from the hospital on July 6 and is currently residing at a rehabilitation center where she will continue to make progress in her recovery.
A fund-raising event was organized so that Gregory may assist in covering her daughter’s medical expenditures and bills as she watches over her daughter during her recovery. Jake, Lily, and Cole are Gregory’s three children, and she raises them all by herself. Her son Cole, who was lovingly known as Coleybug, lost very suddenly in 2010 at the age of one due to a condition known as Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID), which is comparable to SIDS. She is employed as a teacher in the Hillsborough Public School District, and during the summer months, she takes on a variety of odd jobs such as tutoring and other similar tasks in order to bring in more revenue.
The vast majority of people are under the impression that instructors receive pay throughout the summer months; however, this is not the case. “I want Jody to be able to focus on her daughter and her recovery and not have to worry about how she is going to pay her bills, including her health insurance, which is critical right now with Lily’s ever-piling medical expenses,” wrote Klein. “I want her to be able to focus on her daughter and her recovery and not have to worry about how she is going to pay her bills.”
