The Casper Star-Tribune reported the accident occurred last weekend in the Denver area, according to the Wyoming athletics department. No drugs or alcohol were involved, UW said. Adams’ family reached out to the community through a Go Fund Me page to help raise money to help pay for multiple surgeries. “After speaking with the emergency responders, and the neurosurgeon, we were informed how lucky we are to still have Josh with us today. As you can imagine, medical costs for this type of injury are substantial, so through the advice and support of dear friends we are utilizing gofundme to reach out to friends, fans, and supporters of Josh to help raise funds to offset the medical costs,” the post says.
