A Shawnee man critically injured in a motorcycle accident May 5 faces a long recovery from numerous injuries, but says he is thankful for those who helped him at that crash scene, even if he doesn't know who all those people were.

John Lee “Johnny” Jones, 56, is now recovering in a hospital bed at home, but still faces another surgery, he said.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said that accident occurred on State Highway 270 and Stone Avenue in Dale, which is in Pottawatomie County.

Jones was driving a 1996 Yamaha motorcycle eastbound on 270 when he entered into a curve as a 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe going westbound entered into the eastbound lane and struck the motorcycle, the OHP reported.

Jones was transported by Medi Flight helicopter ambulance to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, where he was admitted with numerous injuries. Jones, who said he's been home for about a week now, said there were people at the crash site who helped him until first responders arrived, including an off-duty EMT at the ball fields in the area of the crash.

And while he doesn't know that person or the others who helped him that day, Jones said he is thankful for their help.
