Sometimes you get a piece of news that is like a punch square in the stomach.
It is with a heavy heart that we must inform you all that Sean Rey, our fellow pony-fan who was victim of a double hit-and-run while cycling to work on April 2nd, has passed away, at the age of 26 due to his injuries. He died in the medical center on Saturday, April 18.
A fund that was originally being used towards his medical bills that was being supported by many members of the community of which he was a part, is now being used towards funeral expenses.
Horse News was reached out to by the Alabama Bronies group over a week ago seeking assistance in spreading the word about a pony-related charity auction to raise money for care of their fellow member Sean, after the hit-and-run shattered his pelvis, spine, skull, and numerous other injuries.
Bronies and other concerned citizens raised over $13,400 in 2 weeks towards his medical bills.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
