Community rallies around motorcyclist seriously hurt in Loganville accident

The life of McKinley Allen, a 6-year old little girl from Loganville, was forever changed on April 30 of this past year. She was being raised by her single father, Tyler Lee Allen, who had a full life ahead of him until that dreadful Monday when a distracted driver slammed into him as he rode his motorcycle on Highway 78. Allen would be airlifted to Grady Memorial Hospital where he still remains to this day, nearly two months later.

Allen has since been rendered immobilized by the accident, with injuries on both sides of his body. He has a long road to recovery and his dreams and plans of attending school to become a paramedic in July have now gone soaring out the window. He has lost his job and the security he once had to care for his little girl. With medical bills mounting over $1,000,000 and a scared daughter, Allen’s life is much different to what it was just two months before.

Not all hope is lost for the Allen family, however. Dena Stahl, a witness of the life-changing tragedy, has started a GoFundMe page to help Allen pay for medical bills and continue to care for his daughter. Please visit Allen’s GoFundMe page to learn more about his life and the hardships this crash has put him in, and if you can, please help Tyler and McKinley Allen.
