Wil cooksey was in a motorcycle accident and is currently in intensive care…..

Our prayers are with him…here is a small update:

Recently retired General Motors Plant Manager Wilmer “Wil” Cooksey from Bowling Green, KY and International Council Corvette member, was injured a few days ago in a motorcycle accident. Cooksey is in Vanderbilt Medical Center Hospital Nashville Tennessee.

Wil’s surgery went well; he will remain in ICU under observation for a few more days. In the next 2 or 3 days Wil should be transferred to a private room.

Please continue to hold all phone calls to the family and the hospital until further notice.

Liz Cooksey thanks everyone for their good wishes.

For more information contact Jack Garrett @ 903-571-7468.

Very sorry to hear about Wil, we wish him a speedy recovery.

By coincidence I just arrived home from purchasing the Z06 that was made in his honor.

From the NCM:

<TABLE width="100%" border=0><TBODY><TR><TD bgColor=#999999>Wil Cooksey Injured But Doing Well</TD></TR><TR><TD height=216>

Last week, Corvette friend and retired Assembly Plant Manager, Wil Cooksey was injured while riding his motorcycle with friends during the Corvette Forum weekend festivities.

The steering on his motorcycle locked up and resulted in a broken leg and some bruises for Wil, who is at home and recovering well. Wil’s bike was destroyed but we are thankful that he is safe and recuperating. If you would like to share a get well wish card to Wil we will be happy to make sure he receives them. Mail your cards to The National Corvette Museum – 350 Corvette Drive, Bowling Green, KY 42101. Attn: “Get Well Wil”.
