Good Riddance bassist Chuck Platt hospitalized after being hit by car

Chuck Platt, longtime bassist of punk and melodic hardcore veterans Good Riddance, has been hospitalized after being struck by a car in Santa Cruz, California.

To offset medical bills and various expenses, a friend has launched a GoFundMe campaign on Platt's behalf, accompanied by the following information:

"On Friday, January 14, husband, father, bandmate and friend to many, Chuck Platt, was hit by a car while crossing the street outside of his restaurant, The Crepe Place.

"While Chuck gratefully does not have any life-threatening injuries, he has sustained life-altering injuries that will have a major impact to him physically and financially. Chuck was airlifted to a Bay Area Hospital where he is currently being treated. Chuck sustained the following injuries: right ankle break, left knee injury, broken collar bone, and lacerations to his face and hands. His right ankle and knee injuries were extensive and will require surgery(s) and rehabilitation.

"He is in good spirits and is expected to recover but in the meantime, we are asking for contributions to help with the medical bills and rehabilitation time. Hoping you are able to help support Chuck and his family so he can focus on his recovery. We all want to see Chuck’s smiling face back at his restaurant, onstage and around our community. Thank you!"
