I can understand your desire to help because we can't turn off our compassion personality like they can. It really is better if you don't help because in my case he completely forgot how kind is as him and went back to vilifying me which hurt me even more.
My ipad does a lot of crazy typos.
If it was me, I think I would drive over with the crutches and the kids. Wait in the car while the kids take them inside and visit with him for a few minutes. He gets what may (or may not) help his injury, but more importantly the kids get to see their dad and you've set a good example of rising above and being kind.
I don't really see a downside... unless he lives far from you and it would be a real hassle, in which case don't bother. AND as long as you protect yourself by expecting absolutely nothing in return. No thanks, no appreciation, nada. Think of it like dropping some coins in a homeless man's cup. Do the action that feels right to you and then move on from it, expecting nothing in return.
But, hey .... this is just one girl's thoughts. There are so many on here wiser than me.

Let him crawl to get around. It's not so bad. I had foot surgery and couldn's seem to get the hang of crutches, so I crawled on my butt to get around.
He can suck it up.
He fired you from that job. While it is tempting to help him.... He will not be grateful or value you like you wish.
I totally agree with this, he's a big boy and will figure it out.
