Entire Community Rallies Around Beloved Whitesville, Kentucky Man After Car Accident
Everyone is rallying together to support Daniel "Boone" Carmon, who was hospitalized after a head-on car accident. It'll be a long road to recovery, and several fundraisers have been set up to support the family. #cowboyupforboone
There's a huge showing of support from all over the country for Daniel Carmon. Daniel is a beloved part of the Whitesville community, and the horse riding, mule riding, and coon hunting community. Daniel and his daughter Marti were involved in a head-on automobile accident earlier in the month. Luckily, Marti wasn't seriously injured, but Daniel has a long tough road ahead. He's getting a lot of support throughout his medical journey, which will be needed. There are many fundraisers planned to help with his mounting medical bills, family travel, etc.
Angela Oller, Daniel's fiance, has been by his side ever since the accident. She has been keeping family and friends updated on his recovery on social media. On January 6th, 2023 she shared the tragic news of the accident.
If you have a moment today, please lift my other half up in prayer. He was involved in a head-on collision yesterday afternoon with our oldest daughter, Marti. She has a broken collarbone and an air pocket but is doing well. Daniel suffered a broken collarbone, wrist, femur, and the lower part of his left leg. The doctors said his cat scan looked good, but they are planning to do an MRI. He is currently on a ventilator to help secure his airways. They are planning to do surgery on his leg at 9 am today. Prayer is a mighty thing, and we could use all we can get. Thank you to all who have texted, called, and sent private messages on FB. I was able to read them all and I am thankful for all your kind words, even if I may not have responded.
LATEST MEDICAL UPDATE
1/13/22 Update on Daniel Carmon -
We had a good day yesterday. Daniel was very active! Opening his eyes more, throwing a ball, wiping his own face, swiping the comb through his hair, giving thumbs up, snapping fingers, and giving the peace sign when asked. He was breathing on his own all day yesterday and has been today. They got him up in a special chair today that would still accommodate his legs. His swallowing test went well today. He did bite down and swallowed several times. Emelia got to visit him for the first time today. He opened his eyes and reached for her. We spoke to the facility in Evansville this morning. This is a long term care facility that will work on getting him strong enough to move on to Frazier’s in Louisville. We look for them to move him early part of next week. I can’t thank everyone enough from the texts, phone calls, donations, benefits, auctions, and above all prayers! We are truly blessed with great family and friends from all over!
So many people are praying for a speedy recovery.

KEEP PRAYING FOR THE FAMILY
Please keep not only Daniel in your thoughts and prayers, but Angela, and his children Marti, Emelia, and Parker too.
Sometimes you meet someone and you feel like you've known them forever, and this guy is one of them. The first time I met Daniel Carmon there was a group of people at nono rock in Shawnee trying to get a mule on the rock that didn't want to. Then I see this guy grab a rope from his saddle bag and say.. he'll get up there!!! I knew right then we were gonna get along. You can tell by the love, support, and prayers Daniel and Angela are receiving right now what kind of people they are...I believe in the power of Prayer and the power in Jesus' healing power!!! I believe will be on the trail again soon and he'll pull out that bag of jerky asking me if I want some knowing damn well I do. You have a big mountain to climb my friend, but that is what we mule people do best, climb mountains. - Jesse Yellar Fox #cowboyupforboone
