Oh my god, this is horrible! Former ‘American Idol’ contestant John Stevens was run over by a van while out for a jog in Chelsea, MA, which resulted in a fractured skull, and going deaf in one ear! We have all of the details on the tragic accident, right here.
We feel so terrible for former American Idol contestant John Stevens! The 24-year-old star of season 3 is now suffering from a fractured skull and deafness in one ear after being run over by a van! He was simply out for a jog when he vehicle hit him. Here’s what we know about the horrible accident so far.
It’s hard to forget the baby-faced 16-year-old who rocked the third season of American Idol. He won sixth place with his stunning voice and flaming red hair, and he’s made a name for himself with the Boston Swing Orchestra in MA. Unfortunately, the talented young man was hit by a van a few days before June 28.
“Thank you to everyone who has been calling, texting and messaging,” he began on Facebook on June 18. “Early this week I was hit by a van while out for a run and suffered a fractured skull and dislocated and broken arm. Among other injuries and disorders I’m dealing with, it appears I will have some, if not total deafness in my right ear.” What a terrible thing to happen to someone who makes music for a living!
Luckily, John is getting the best care possible. “The staff at Mass General were above and beyond anything I could’ve ever asked for,” he continued, graciously. “My parents have taken me back to Buffalo for a couple weeks to heal and recover from the accident since I won’t be able to work. Thank you very much for all of the well wishes and prayers. It truly means a lot to me.” Get well soon, John!
