Prayers Needed...Tragic accident involving my daughter's friend
Sunday, August 29, 2010
Please pray for these people. Maddie was one of my daughter's friends. An unfortunate accident, but I wanted to put the article here as a reminder of the importance of following traffic laws. Maybe this still would have happened... maybe it was just Maddie's time to go home. She will be missed terribly. Thanks so much for the prayers. They are much needed and appreciated.
A 15-year-old girl is dead as the result of a car accident that happened around 3:30 Saturday afternoon.
Utah Highway Patrol officials say the driver of an Oldsmobile Alero, which was carrying 4 other passengers, ran a stop sign at the intersection of SR13 and 8000 North in Elwood, UT, colliding with a Chevy truck driven by 69-year-old Richard Rock. The driver of the Alero was hospitalized for injuries, and released later that day, but 15-year-old passenger Madison Kimball was pronounced dead when she arrived at Bear River Valley Hospital. Two additional passengers -18-year-old Celena Yeates and 16-year-old Mckenzie Christoffersen - are in critical condition at Salt Lake-area hospitals. 17-year-old passenger Trevor Madson is also at a hospital with serious injuries
None of the Alero's occupants were wearing seatbelts. The driver of the truck, who was wearing a seatbelt, was transported to a hospital with injuries and released later that day.
