Family members told Fox 13 Jeff Thurmond was driving north on 700 E. when a Nissan Cube stopped short to avoid hitting another car.

Relatives said Thurmond hit the back of the Nissan and suffered a “severe spinal injury.”

They told us he has no feeling from the neck down and is undergoing surgery to relieve pressure on his spinal cord but may remain paralyzed.

Police said the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet and the Cube driver was not injured.

Family members said Thurmond is an avid motorcyclist and president of the Beehive Beemers Club.

The family has set up a Go Fund Me page to help pay for Thurmond’s medical care.
