A benefit is planned for a City of College Station employee who was critically injured last month in an accident on Wellborn Road.

Harold Dendy Brown continues to recover at a local hospital after suffering severe injuries to his legs, according to family.

Brown, a solid waste operator, was on his route last month when a car slammed into the back of a city garbage truck near the new H-E-B store. The car pinned Brown to the back of the truck.

A BBQ dinner, silent auction, and raffle are just some of the activities planned for the event on Friday, November 16 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Veteran's Park in College Station.

"He has more than 30 wounds or punctures in his legs," said Brown's sister, Tammy Neal. "We are so blessed that God has been with him this whole time."

Brown has already had several surgeries and doctors may have been able to save his legs, said Neal.

"He has about 20 weeks of hospital and rehab to go," she said. "His attitude and determination is amazing."

The family is currently accepting financial donations to help cover future expenses.

Donations can be sent to:

Citizens State Bank

P.O. Box 389

Caldwell, TX 77836

Checks can be made out to Harold/Dendy Brown. Donations can also be made at Citizens State Bank in Somerville, Deanville, Snook, Navasota and Brenham.
