This is awful!
Everyone remember John Stevens from Season 3 of American Idol? The youngest contestant to make it to the finals when he was just 16 years old by singing Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin songs?
Last week, he was out for a run in Chelsea, Massachusetts and was hit by a van! Oh no!
The 28-year-old suffered a fractured skull, broken arm, and deafness in his right ear. He is now recuperating in Buffalo, New York with his parents.
The Boston Globe reports the incident happened in the evening near a crosswalk where Stevens was jogging with headphones in. A witness said the van did not appear to be speeding — and charges against the driver have not been pressed.
After having some time to recover, Stevens took to Facebook to give an update and to thank everyone for their well wishes:
Hang in there, John!!!
