Epic Games is auctioning off three signed Gears of War replica Lancers to help former Insomniac Games intern and artist Ana Kessel following a hit-and-run car accident.

Kessel was hospitalized last week in North Carolina after being struck by an unlicensed driver. As a result of the accident, one of Kessel's legs was amputated. All proceeds from Epic's auctions will be donated to Kessel's recovery.

Current bids for the Lancer replicas are around $205, $400 and $405. All three auctions still have four days left.

Friends and family are currently raising money to help pay for Kessel's medical bills. More than $42,000 has already been raised on her behalf.
