Mays Greenhouse, a Bloomington business since 1965, reopened Tuesday, October 4, 2022 after a collision Friday left two injured, and a building damaged.
the business is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Mays has pumpkins, fall decorations, house plants, and other items for sale at the moment.
A worker at the business said grass seed, and some other items were damaged in the collision, but the business was mostly unaffected, except the damaged building will now need to be assessed and repaired if possible.
The worker said they heard several boom sounds, and then a dump truck came through a wall.
Workers at the business said they are sending good thoughts to the 17-year-old juvenile who was injured in the collision, and to his family.
An empty dump truck hit a Gator occupied by the juvenile, who works for Mays Greenhouse, during the collision involving five vehicles.
A relative of the 17-year-old, Lori Ann Clendening, made a public post on Facebook saying the following:
“I know in my heart that the power of prayer can move mountains. I truly believe it. Please continue to pray for every single person involved in the accident yesterday at May’s Greenhouse.
Update on Joey:
He has sustained many injuries. Too many to list.
The upcoming days are critical, and it is crucial that we are diligent in our prayers.
The amazing and wonderful part? He has been awake twice today and has squeezed his Mom’s and Grandma’s hands.
As always, much love to all who are reaching out in support. We truly appreciate the prayer chains that have been started and the prayer warriors who have directed their focus on this precious boy.”
