PITTSBURGH, PA (WMC) -

A 2-year journey to break a wold record and raise money for kids to go to college came to a sudden crashing halt Saturday. That's when Adam Sandoval and his riding buddy, a little dog named scooter, were hit by a car on their Harley Davidson. The pair has been criss-crossing the country on that Harley raising money and awareness for the children of fallen soldiers and first responders.

They have been greeted by thousands and thousands of riders across the country, and more than 300,000 people follow their journey on Facebook. 

The pair visited the Mid-South in October on their journey as well. You can read my previous blog about their journey here.

Saturday morning in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, they were not greeted by supporters but by the driver's side of a little white car. A post from their 
Facebook page.

"On the way to the first stop today a lady driving in oncoming traffic came across the line and hit Adam. First Scooter seems ok! They life flew Adam to the UPMC Presbyterian hospital in Pittsburgh where he was admitted. He is stable. We will do our best to keep you updated with details."

The post has been shared more than 10 thousand times. An updated posted Sunday morning indicates Sandoval's appreciation of all of the support, but a warning that scammers may also be out there to take advantage.

Update: Adam is still stable and preparing for surgery in the am. He is so thankful for all your support and prayers. He asked to make everyone aware that as he appreciates people starting go fund me accounts, they are not authorized by him and he does not support these pages circulation. Lastly he wanted to say, he is fighting, and remind people that ...............................
"We ARE NOT quitters, we ARE Americans"!

    The man in red likes to take things - a mower and weed eater from one home, change and a cell phone from someone's unlocked truck, even a little red wagon, and a 2-year-old's lunch box. Neighbors said the thief wears all red and a home surveillance camera caught him as he peered into 2-year-old Willia's backyard where she stored her little red wagon.
