  • Eric Bahl

    Jennifer just called. Eric was hit by a car, hit & run, in Chattanooga. Currently he is in ICU @ Erlanger. Apparently several broken ribs, multiple fractures of the pelvis, ?ruptured bladder. Terry Dendy was right behind him. By the time he got pulled over, stopped & back to Eric, the car driver took off on foot. Lots of witnesses, immediate 911 calls and response. Surgery scheduled tomorrow. State troopers know who they are looking for. Further details as available.

            Just got off the phone with jennifer: Erik's out of surgery (pelvis, bladder, and ribs) in icu now. He's going to be in icu for a couple days so jennifer asked that people wait until he's in a regular room. Second surgery later this week on his arm.... Lots of pins and screws... He's probably going to have to learn to walk again. Right now docs think @3 months in bed.... Prayers to erik and jennifer and big thanx to terry and john.

              That is tragic news, my heart aches. I hope the long term prognosis is not as bad as they say. Those close to Jennifer please keep us updated.

                        I'm just sick over this. We had so much fun this weekend with Erik there. WE always do. I hate so bad that he will have to go through all this. I do hope Jennifer will let us know what they need help with. My prayers are certainly with them.

                          Sorry to hear about this Erik. I pray that all will go well and your recovery will be successful. Stay strong and take it slowly for a full recovery. As Gail said, no excuse for the scum-bag. The State Police found the guy that hit my daughter and I so let's hope that they get your guy AND that he has insurance.

                          Take care Erik.

                            If the scum-bag ran from the scene he probably doesn't have insurance or even a drivers licence.

                              Does anyone have any info they can put on here as to where eric is in the hospital at,phone # etc as those of us in the south have no idea where Erlanger is.

                              God speed for a speedy recovery Eric.

                              Has anyone heard if they have apprehended the felon yet?
