A fundraiser is happening today for the Good Samaritan teen who was injured helping crash victims on I-96. 

Sean English, 17, lost part of his right leg while helping on I-96 near the Davison Freeway on Sunday, April 2.

English was with his parents when they pulled over to help six teenagers in a Jeep rollover crash.
While pulled over on the shoulder, another driver hit them.

The teen suffered severe leg injuries and his life was saved when an MSP trooper applied a tourniquet to his thigh, but ultimately the track athlete at University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy lost his right leg from the knee down.

We're told he was set to break school records this year.

To help support Sean and his family there is a "Dine to Donate" fundraiser at four different Applebee's locations.

They are: Northville, Canton, Livonia and Commerce Twp.

We’re told English worked at the Northville location.

The fundraiser is from 4 p.m. - 9 p.m. today.

The restaurants are donating 20 percent of their food sales to the English family for medical expenses.

Dr. Cynthia Ray was the other Good Samaritan who was injured in the second crash. The Henry Ford doctor was on her way to work when she pulled over to help. She later died from injuries.

No charges have been filed against the 17-year-old driver, Keith Martin, who caused that second crash.
