LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - He is a young father and Louisville Corrections Officer who was about to move into a new home.

But right when things started looking up, 22-year-old Thomas Wells' life took a turn.

He was struck while riding a motorcycle earlier this month.

Wells ended up in critical condition with a brain bleed and fractured skull.

To make things worse -- he'd just started as a corrections officer, and he didn't have much paid accrued time off, according to FOP President Tracy Dotson.

Saturday, the Fraternal Order of Police held a cookout and yard sale to help.

In the meantime, volunteers have been moving him into his new home.

His mother is now looking after him. Wells is awake about five hours of the day.
