Miami, FL (July 18, 2006)–On the night of Thursday, July 13, 2006, Eric Schilling was driving from his home in Rockledge, FL to Miami for a gig and was involved in a very serious car accident. He was driving southbound to mix house sound for Gloria Estefan as part of Zo’s Summer Groove, Alonso Mourning’s annual charity event at the American Airlines Arena, which took place this past Saturday night, July 15, 2006.
Eric sustained very serious injuries and is currently at the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, FL. His family has set up a web site where you may monitor his progress: http://web.mac.com/br1ttany23/iWeb/Site/Welcome.html.
