Injured AA County Officer Could Use Your Help

I am posting this for anyone in the community who would like to help out a friend of mine. Anne Arundel County recently had an officer struck by a car while on a traffic stop on Rt. 665 outside Annapolis. Basically, as I understand it Cpl. Kevin Mont had made a traffic stop on a person who decided for whatever reason to stop in the travel portion of the fast lane of traffic. He got out of his car to ask them to move to a better location, when a fast moving Acura came up from behind, and struck a Celica bouncing it into the officer. Kevin tried to jump out of the way but the Celica struck him anyway and he ended up in Shock Trauma, and now in rehab, with two badly broken legs. The driver of the Acura fled the scene and has since been arrested.

I have known Kevin since he came on the police department. From day one he has always been one of these officers who is just the kind of person you wanted coming to your house if you or a family member ever needed help. He is a great cop and one heck of a nice guy. To give you an idea, after the accident when the Celica driver was sitting on the ground crying Kevin was laying there with two broken legs trying to console him.

There is a fund to help out Kevin and his family for the next few months at the Bank of Annapolis. This is not something he started or asked for, it is something some of his friends started for him. When an officer gets injured like this there are a whole lot of expenses that aren't covered, not the least of which is the fact that all of the officer's part-time work, overtime, court time, and shift differential, which a lot of guys have to depend on to make ends meet, go out the window. Add to that the expenses of family travel back and forth to rehab and having to have mom handle the family and everything at home herself.

Below is a Paypal link and also the address for Bank of Annapolis if you want to help but don't want to use Paypal. No amount is too small, and nothing goes unappreciated. If you want to add a note that you are from the Maryland Shooters community that is up to you, just click on the "add special instructions" link on the Paypal page and it will give you a text box where you can add a note. Doesn't matter to me, but I thought it might be important to some people so I note it. I also included a Facebook link for some more background. Even if you can't donate anything feel free to visit and leave some encouraging words if you want. Thank you.

Recovery fund Paypal link:

paypal e-mail address (in case link gives you trouble) is : friendsofkevinmont@gmail.com
