Teddy was also injured by road rash and suffered a skull injury, broken fibula and a broken tibia. According to a GoFundMe that Counihan has created in an effort to raise funds for the child’s medical bills.

Teddy’s father shared that the accident had kept him off of his bike and in the house, but the young boy felt he had to figure out a way to help with the debt.

“We needed to make up an idea to raise money for the hospital bills,” Teddy According to Fox 5 Atlanta.

The family believes that all contributions are welcome.
