HIT PARADE RADIO Pres. JOHN ROOK tells ALL ACCESS that longtime KQV/PITTSBURGH and KLUV/DALLAS radio star "CHUCK BRINKMAN was involved in a very serious automobile accident. His vehicle was 'T-boned' by an SUV near his home in PLANO, TX."
According to his daughter on a DALLAS Web site:
"Dad has six broken ribs, one of which collapsed a lung and caused internal bleeding. He also has a large bruise on one kidney causing it to not function. His pelvis and hip are shattered. He remained stable overnight although there are concerns about the bleeding and the kidney. He is getting blood transfusions and dilaudid, the latter of which he reports enjoying. He is a tough guy, as you know, but he is 76 and very badly injured."
All of us at ALL ACCESS wish BRINKMAN a speedy recovery.
