Default Thoughts and Prayers would be appreciated....

I really don't post my personal life on here too often, but I figure if anyone is willing to send thoughts and prayers for my family, it sure couldn't hurt.

I was at work today and got a call around 12:00 that my 4-year old son, sister-in-law, mother-in-law, and nephew were in a head-on collison coming home today from picking up my little guy at pre-school. I didn't know at first what was going on based on the initial phone calls and immediately thought the worst...a feeling I NEVER want to experience again.

A guy driving a pickup truck was in a hurry and tried to get around a UPS truck turning right....he hit a patch of ice or snow and lost control of his truck and went straight into my mother-in-laws car.

This is the picture of the guys truck....it completely broke in half and the back tires flew off:



These are pictures of my mother-in-laws car:






All 4 of them were sent to the hospital. My little guy had an ultrasound because he was complaining about pain in his stomach. He was checked and cleared, as was my 2-year old nephew. My mother-in-law has fractured ribs and is very bruised and sore. My sister-in-law is the worst of the bunch and cannot move without help. No broken bones, but very bruised all over and sore. The good news is that everyone is home and resting.

Like I said, if anyone here does pray, I would appreciate any extra thoughts or prayers. As cheesy as it seems, I think of many people on here as my extended family....

Thanks,
Mike

Holy crap. That is one scary looking scene. Glad they made it out ok. Best wishes to them.

We had a ton of accidents out here in Utah today as well. Rain and freezing temperatures don't mix well. On my way to school today, I saw a 10 car pileup and a bus that slid out and took down a stoplight. Ice is freakin crazy.

Gotta love it when someone has no problem disregarding anyones elses safety simply because they are in a hurry. I hope everything turns out ok for you. Good luck and wishes for your family.

Thanks everyone for the comments, thoughts, prayers, and well wishes...

I guess the guy in the truck got out and apologized to my sister-in-law and was fine other than a cut by his eye. He didn't go to the hospital from what I understand. Not 100% positive on the hospital part though....I just know he didn't go to the one we were at.

Looking at those pictures, it's amazing that everyone came out (somewhat) ok. Hopefully everyone has a full recovery.
