Fundraiser dance held Saturday for crash victim

BIDDEFORD, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- In November of last year, Alex Paul of Biddeford was involved in a head-on crash, now leaving him a quadriplegic.

Paul was riding his mini bike on Willey Road in the Saco Industrial Park when he rode out to meet some arriving friends.  On his way out, a vehicle passing another vehicle struck him head on.  He was transported to Maine Medical Center where he spent four weeks in acute care.  He has since spent a significant amount of time in rehabilitation at Boston Medical Center.

The accident has left him a quadriplegic and his family facing a tremendous amount of medical bills.  Paul now faces a lifetime of rehabilitation.

A St. Patrick's Day dance will be held at the Rochambeau Club at 8pm in Biddeford as a fund-raising event.  To buy a ticket for $10, contact Helene Kennedy at  Furthermore, if you would like to donate to Paul's ongoing medical bill fund, you can visit the family's HelpHOPELive website by clicking here.
