Jack Kramer and Renae Jergens had a wreck on the railroad tracks just outside of Wall Lake on Monday of Ragbrai. Both were taken by ambulance to Sac County Hospital. Renae was treated and released that day for a broken collar bone. She went home from Ragbrai on Wednesday. Jack didn't fair as well he broke his hip in 3 places and had to be taken to Lincoln by ambulance from the Sac County Hospital. He had surgery and pins placed. He did get released from the hospital yesterday but will be in a wheel chair for at least 6 weeks.
He knows lots of people from Ragbrai. Everyone knows him as the gentle giant, he is over 7 feet tall. People would recognize him in the beer gardens doing the dance "Strokin".
He is a professor at the college in Hastings,NE. I will try to get his home address too. He would appreciate phone calls, emails and Get Well cards.
