Many of us here on KFNZ know Dyls pretty well. For those that haven't heard, following is a FB message from a close family member that I'm reposting with their permission regarding a pretty serious accident he's had....

Hi all...for those who don't know Dills had a car accident on Saturday morning. He is ok but has fractured spine and ruptured bladder. He be in hospital for a while and needs a few ops. In Ward M12 room 9 Waikato Hospt. He would probably appreciate company. He doesn't have his phone but you can reach him on 02102954138. He's pretty wasted on morphine....

That's really sad to hear - he's a really nice guy. Hope the healing process goes well, and he can make a full recovery from it. Thanks for letting us know.
