A well known Ocean Beach man – who goes by his nickname “G-Rock” – was badly injured Christmas night in a vehicle-pedestrian accident; he’s currently hospitalized but is expected to recover.

Police reported that “G-Rock” was hit by a car at Ebers Street and Voltaire Street in Ocean Beach. It was determined by police that drugs or alcohol were not involved.

G-Rock’s name is Glyn Abraham Franks, according to a cousin, who contacted the OB Rag looking for any information about what happened. (Media called him “Glen”.) Franks is mentally challenged but has lots of friends in the community, as he was born and raised in OB.

He’s also an aide to his dad, Glyn Franks of 2nd Chances, Bread of Life food distribution.

Carter Moss, the campus pastor of Newbreak Church on Ebers, told 10News that his congregation calls G-Rock “Little Glenny.”

“He’s a great guy. You know, he has a couple of challenges that he has to work through, just kind of physical and mental stuff; but such a lovable guy, always comes and gives me a hug right away when he sees me.”

Moss directed his comment to Franks:

We’re praying hard for you. And we love you and we’ll be excited to have you back.”
