A Parents Worst Nightmare

This evening we heard that one of the boys in the Earthquest program with Sean was in a car accident last night.  He was on his way home from a friends volleyball game 7:30 at night when his truck went off the road and down a 25 foot  embankment and hit a tree.  The Jaws of Life were needed to help get Austin freed from the vehicle.  He has serious head and limb injuries.  Tonight he is having surgery  to remove a blood clot from his brain. 

Austin is 17 years old, a Lacrosse star, likes to joke and laugh and have fun and is very much liked by many, many people.  My heart is breaking for him, his friends and his family. 

We are praying for him.

That's just horrible.
I'll keep him in my prayers too. His poor family.
