Albert Haynesworth Paralyzed a Boy - Don't Forget That

The Help Corey Edmondson Fund was established to raise cash for a 25-year-old injured in a car accident with Washington Redskin Albert Haynesworth.

Edmondson is unable to walk, work and pay his bills since the car crash on Dec. 13.

Haynesworth was driving a 2008 black Ferrari on I-65 near at speeds in excess of 100mph when he tried to pass and clipped a 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis driven by Edmondson. Corey lost control of his car and smashed into a concrete wall. The collision left black paint from Haynesworth's car on Edmondson's driver side.

The $100 million dollar face stomping man, Haynesworth, was charged with careless driving and cited for driving a vehicle that had an expired registration - four days after he was sentenced to probation for driving 103mph on I-65...

The picture below is Corey's.

Fund set up for Haynesworth accident victim





From Help Corey:

As Haynesworth agrees to a $100 million deal with the Washington Redskins, making him the highest paid defensive player in the NFL, Corey D. Edmondson is still unable to pay his household expenses stemming from the accident on December 13, 2008.

Corey (25-year-old) has been unable to walk, work or pay his mounting medical and household bills since the collision when Haynesworth’s 2008 black Ferrari stuck Edmondson’s car at a high rate of speed forcing Edmondson’s 1999 Mercury to crash into a concrete wall. After having multiple surgeries, he ultimately required hip replacement surgery. Edmondson still can only move by wheelchair or walker. To date, Edmondson’s medical and pharmacy bills exceed $230,000 and continue to increase.

Many of Corey’s co-workers at Belk, as well as other concerned friends and relatives, have been wanting to assist Corey with his expenses as he awaits resolution of his claims against Haynesworth so the ‘Help Corey Edmondson Fund’ has been established at Reliant Bank to help Corey.

Haynesworth was witnessed traveling at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour after he entered I-65 and immediately began to move quickly in and out of lanes attempting to pass other vehicles in his way. Haynesworth tried to pass Corey’s vehicle on the right, but another vehicle was in the way. Haynesworth slammed on his brakes and abruptly crossed multiple lanes into the inside lane next to the concrete barrier wall. Accelerating his Ferrari up to speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour, Haynesworth tried to pass Mr. Edmondson and crossed into his lane suddenly and without warning, striking Mr. Edmondson’s driver side. This collision, which left black paint from Haynesworth’s Ferrari on Mr. Edmondson’s driver side, caused Mr. Edmondson to slam into the concrete median wall resulting in severe injuries to Mr. Edmondson and totaling his vehicle.

Mr. Haynesworth was traveling at such a high rate of speed that he was unable to stop until well beyond the accident. Haynesworth admitted to the investigating officer at the scene that his Ferrari struck Mr. Edmondson’s vehicle.

Haynesworth’s high speed accident comes just four days after he was sentenced to probation by Williamson County Circuit Court Judge Robbie Beal on December 9, 2008. Haynesworth was on probation for admittedly driving 103 mph in a 70 mph zone on Interstate 65 several months before.

Mr. Edmondson and his family continue to ask for prayers and privacy during this difficult time. Any requests for information should be made to Jon Perry at The Perry Firm, 1896 General George Patton Drive, Franklin, TN 37067, (615) 550-1200 or e-mail JPerry@PerryFirm.com (http://www.perryfirm.com/).

    I assume his family is taking legal action against Mr. Hayneworth. This should take care of his medical bills as well as future earnings lost.

  4. I am a long time fan of the Redskins and as a fan I of course was excited at the potential he brings even if it is unsure how he would actually perform. I was not aware of this accident at the time. At first hearing about his potential jail time and as a fan I think how is it going to affect my team. After learning more though I hope they make an example of him that he is responsible for the injury he caused that will have so much affect on Coreys life. I have a daughter who has become handicapped by a car accident although no one ealse was at fault we went through a time when she may have died and then be paralyzed. Fortunately although she is hadicapped and has little use of one arm and other difficulties she is able to walk reasonably and take care of her self though she is unable to work as well. I share this only to say I feel I know the fear and torment this kind of accident can bring to a family and I only hope that Mr. Haynesworth will understand the damage he has done and take full responsibilty both financialy, publicly and in respect privately to Corey and his family. It may be fair for him whith the legal procedding to be keeping mute on it for now. After the legal issue is resolved hopefully he will demonstrate behavior that is not as selfishly as he has so far demonstrated.
    My best wish's and thoughts to Corey and his Family! They did not ask for this spotlight and are not responsible in any way for what this rich famous person needs to take full responsibility for.

    We are guilty as a society for letting the Haynesworths get away with such behavior. Over and over again, he has displayed unwarranted aggressive actions - on and off the field. This recent Dec car accident has left a young man unable to work or provide for his shelter and basic care. Additionally, he has mounting medical bills. It will be years before there is a legal settlement. Time-out. All your athletic success does not allow you go through life so reckless that you devastate those in your path.

  6. From the looks of the car, the accident really looks fatal. I hope Edmondson was able to recover from that unfortunate event.
