BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — More than $12,000 dollars has been raised to help some Western New York wrestlers hurt in a crash on the Thruway.

According to Empire State Wrestling, the Buffalo Brothers were on their way back from an event in Montreal when their vehicle hit a patch of black ice and crashed. A fellow wrestler tweeted that "a guardrail just about ripped the car in half."

It reports Nick Pufpaff and Kevin Bennett sustained minor injuries, while Danny Garcia and Kevin Lockwood had to undergo surgery.

Support is now pouring in for the wrestlers, as many professional wrestlers, including some in the WWE, share the news of what happened.
