TULSA, OK -- The family of a man who was injured in an accident caused by escaping horses along U.S. Highway 169 is reaching out for help.

Brandon Osborn, 35, has been in the ICU for more than a week. A husband and father of three, Osborn is a shop foreman for a steel company and was on his way home from work when the accident occurred.

The accident happened October 16 on U.S. Highway 169 between Owasso and Tulsa. Owasso and Tulsa police say 20 to 30 horses got loose from a pasture east of the highway near 56th Street North and wandered onto 169 at about 3 a.m.

EMSA transported Osborn in serious condition to an area hospital, but recent reports have upgraded his status to fair condition.

"This could have been anyone of us coming home from work one minute and laying in a hospital bed the next," reads a web site created by Osborn's family.

A benefit will be held in Osborn's honor to raise funds to help cover medical expenses. The benefit will be held on Wednesday, November 11th at three separate venues.

  • C.J. Moloneys, 1849 South Aspen, Broken Arrow -- cover bands
  • Flytrap, 514 East 2nd, Tulsa -- hard rock bands
  • The Marquee, 222 North Main, Tulsa -- rock bands

Donations are also being accepted at any Bank of America branch to the "Brandon Lee Osborn Medical Fund."
