Prayers requested please...

Ellie and Reid's mom here. What you are looking at is an accident that involved 2 dear friends of my dad's. They were heading out for a day trip which was abruptly interrupted when the driver of the semi fell asleep at the wheel and went across the road from the opposite side causing this accident in PA. My dad's friends were in the red pickup truck underneath the semi's cab. The driver of the pickup, Steve, was much better off than the passenger, Tom. Steve was released from the hospital with facial injuries and lots of bumps and bruises. Tom was life flighted to a hospital in PA. He was to hopefully come off the vent today and was undergoing surgery this afternoon as well. The accident occurred Saturday. Tom has several shattered bones in his legs as well as many facial issues. He was pinned in the vehicle and I know my mom said his ankle was shattered and hip was also a mess. These two men are such dear friends of my dad (and family). I just ask for prayers for them. My dad is heading out for PA tomorrow to see Tom. I know these families would love your prayers and love during this time. I am amazed they walked away with only the injuries that they had. Thanks again for your thoughts for Steve and Tom.

Here is the vehicle they were in. Gives me goosebumps.....

Prayers are being said, please let us know what we can do. Do these families live here in town? If so, maybe there is more we can do!
