CDunn Posted October 6, 2003 Share Posted October 6, 2003 Atlanta Thrashers center Dan Synder died tonight, October 5, in Atlanta. He was involved in a severve car crash while riding with teammate Dany Heatley about a week prior. Heatley's car was ripped in two, but Heatley only suffered a broken jaw and shoulder, a bruised liver, kidney,and lung. Snyder was not wearing his seat belt and was thrown from the front of the car. The car was going 80mph in an upscale section of Atlanta known as Buckhead down a Lenox road. Lenox is very curvy and Heatly lost control and slammed into a brick pillar part of a fence surrounding a condominium sub division. I used to live a mile or less from where the crash was. Synder's skull collapsed and had surgery performed at Grady Memorial Hospital the next day. Synder went into a coma and never woke up. Heatley will face several minor charges and one felony charge for serious injury by vehicle. God bless Dan Synder and his family. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
