Penn State Alum Dom DiLella Seriously Injured In State College Crash

Penn State Alum Dom DiLella of Dunmore, Pa. was in a serious car accident in State College on Saturday which required him to be airlifted to UPMC in Pittsburgh after being revived at the scene of the crash. DiLella had to have his arm amputated due to injuries sustained in the crash, and also suffered from a fractured face and jaw.

DiLella was taken off the ventilator that was helping him breathe, but remains in critical condition. Though he will face an extremely long and difficult path to recovery, his doctors are optimistic.

A GoFundMe has been set up to cover the hospitalization and medical costs as well as support DiLella and his family through this extremely difficult time. The family has given thanks and gratitude to the excellent team of doctors, nurses, and EMTs who saved him, and will continue to work with him through his recovery.

The hashtag #Prayers4Dom was also created in his honor in order for fellow Penn Staters and others to show support on social media. Our thoughts are with DiLella and his family during this difficult time.
