Kevin was seriously injured just before 1 AM on Sunday, September 1 during Labor Day weekend. He, Jared Black and Rebecca Broxterman were trapped in Kevin’s Plymouth Barracuda (which he bought himself for his 40th birthday this year) when it veered off the road and fell into gully about 10 feet deep.

The car was completely crushed due to the impact of smashing through wooden fencing that ran along the road. Kevin suffered “ three major spinal fractures” as a result of the car accident. Rebecca is Kevin’s wife Eniko Parrish’s personal trainer, and Jared is Rebecca’s fiancé.
