    Yesterday, my best friend Eric, and his wife were headed to Florida for a vacation. They were crammed in a SUV with 7 of his wife's family members. Well, the car behind them decided they were not going fast enough and rear-ended them. Thier SUV flipped several times, ejecting 7 of the 9 out of the car. Only the driver was wearing a seat belt. My best friend and his wife are in a Flordia hospital in ICU. Eric's neck is possibly broken. His wife's 10 year old little brother and her sister's little 3 year old were killed. All 7 surviors are in ICU including her sister's other child, a 4 months old. I am really tense and I would like to ask if you pray, please pray for Eric and Ashley and her family. I am so shaken and upset. Too upset to even cry. I would give anything to be in Flordia right now.

    Rage drivers are very dangerous.. I hope they throw the book at him/her.

    Its a shame, I gather you don't have seatbelt laws there... seatbelts would have helped with lesser injuries, especially in a roll over...

    Sending good healthy vibes your friends way. [​IMG]
