tragedy in my neighborhood
Monday, April 29, 2013
There was a horrible accident in my neighborhood on Saturday night. A 17 year old girl was driving and hit three 13 year olds and one 15 year old. Two of the kids were treated at the hospital and released, but one was flown to Primary children's hospital and is expected to survive while another was also flown to Primary children's, but didn't make it.
As near as we can tell from the police and witnesses, there was no one to blame. Just a very dark night, and an unlit country road with no shoulder to speak of. Certainly no place for pedestrians in the dark.
This is the sort of community that will rally round in support of all those involved. We're all just heartbroken. These are such good families and my prayers are for all of them.
