NEWAYGO COUNTY, Mich. -- A West Michigan sheriff's deputy is in need of your help this morning, after he was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident.

The Newaygo County Sheriff's office is hosting a fundraiser to help raise money for Deputy Rocky Wildfong's medical bills.

Wildfong had to have his left leg amputated above his knee as a result of that crash, which happened back in July. He also suffered a broken wrist and vision loss and is still recovering at Mary Free Bed in Grand Rapids.

The fundraiser is planned for August 18 at Jimmy's Roadhouse in Newaygo.
