From what I saw

on the Island, it appeared there was a good turn out.

Now, to ensure the proceeds are best used for the young man, the Island Taxi owner should confirm whether he has informed his workers compensation insurance company of the incident; allow the insurance company to determine whether the driver is a true independant contractor or an employee under NC statutes; and allow the insurance company to pay for medical expenses and lost income if the young man is an employee for workers compensation benefits.

I believe it will be proven he is an employee despite the position title of independant contractor.

Might be a good follow up question. For that matter, did the owner even have workers compensation insurance? Another relevant question.
