FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - A 25-year-old West Fargo man has a long road to recovery ahead of him after colliding with a dump truck last week.

Police say they responded to the intersection of 52nd Ave. S. and 53rd St. S., near the Fargo Basketball Academy on Wednesday, Oct. 5 for an accident involving a motorcycle and a dump truck. 52nd Ave. S. was closed from Veterans Boulevard to the I-29 interchange for hours as officers re-constructed the crash Wednesday.

The driver of the motorcycle, who has been identified as Dallas Donahue was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, and remains at Sanford hospital. A CaringBridge site for Donahue stated Monday is “a big day for Dallas. They are prepping to take him back into surgery to attempt to fix broken bones. It will be a marathon....as long as he remains stable they will push forward and fix what they can today.” Donahue has already undergone multiple surgeries since his accident.

The driver of the dump truck has been cited for failing to yield. It’s unclear if further charges could be filed.

A car and bike show benefit has been planned for Donahue on Oct. 16 in the Scheels Arena Parking from 12-4 p.m. A Lend A Hand Up fundraiser has also been established for donations to help with Donahue’s medical expenses.
