    We have worried about these girls all night. We were one of the first on the scene. Our prayers are with them and there families.

    My cousin is college roommates with those girls and she is devastated. She would have been in that car too if she hadnt come and visited home, and today they stopped life support for one of the girls… Prayers go out to the other two<3

    My sister was one of the girls involved in the accident. She has a broken femur, 4 broken ribs, fractured pelvis, lacerated liver that has been causing internal bleeding and a concussion and is still in the ICU. One of her roommates has a cracked collarbone and her face is pretty banged up but she is doing okay. The other sweet girl was in a coma and sadly has passed. She will be saving and improving the lives of 9 others through organ donations. Please still pray for everyone involved and their loved ones- the other car as well. Everyone needs some comfort in this time.
