Rich O’Toole Involved in Automobile Accident, Hospitalized with ‘Severe Neck Injury’

Rich O’Toole is recovering from a neck injury he sustained in a car accident this weekend.

O’Toole, who was in Amarillo for a show at The Golden Light Café and Cantina, was a passenger in a car that was involved in the accident. He was rushed to North West Texas Hospital with a severe neck injury. He underwent surgery Sunday night and will remain the hospital for an undetermined amount of time.

We’ll keep you updated as we find out more. Thoughts and prayers.

UPDATE: from Saving Country Music.

He had surgery last night,” says Hayden Sears. “Everything went well. He is expected to be out for the next week or two depending on the diagnosis the doctors give him today. He had surgery on what I believe was the C6 vertebrae. The doctor said something about it being rotated. And that’s all I’ve got right now. He’s able to walk, he’s able to move his extremities. So everything is looking good, and people praying for him definitely helped. His mom flew out Saturday night to be with him.
