CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – News reporter and beloved community member Lee Erwin has officially returned back to work as of Thursday, July 18.
Lee was injured in a crash several weeks ago, and has spent that recovering at home. Those who know Lee understand how hard it has been for him to be away from his duties.
“It’s fantastic to be back,” he said. “I’m not a sit at home kind of guy. That’s been one of the roughest things, not being able to be out in the community and do things.”
When the community got word of Lee’s accident, the outpouring of love and support was tremendous. Scores of concerned friends called for updates on his condition.
Lee said he would like to thank everyone at 5 Star Radio and Clarksvillenow.com, as well as the countless members of the community who reached out to him.
“There are so many people who called. I thank everyone here at work and folks in the community for their support during this time,” he said.
After a long period of rest and recovery, Lee is still healing, but knows he will be back into the swing of things quickly. He said being able to do what he loves will help speed up the process.
Most importantly, Lee wants the public to know how important it is to buckle up when getting in a vehicle, no matter the circumstances. “If I hadn’t been wearing my seat belt during the crash, I probably would not be here today,” he said.
Welcome back Lee, you were missed!
