Helping the Barrett family
Thursday morning myself and my two sons Kolton age 5 and hunter age 2(in 4 days) hit black ice in Graham headed to drop Kolton off at school. We avoided hitting a car head on but that sent us up into the trees on the side of the road where we hit a tree on hunters side of the truck. The force flipped the truck and we landed upside down. The impact completely crushed Hunters side of the truck in. We all had to be cut out of the truck. Hunter was in his rear facing safety 1st car seat in the accident which saved his life without a doubt! We were all taken to the hospital that morning by ambulance. Hunter ended up with a broken left femur and minor cuts and bruises. Kolton and I only ended up with some scrapes and bruises. Over all we are ok. Our truck on the other hand is totalled and we only had liability insurance. I decided to ask our friends and family for help in finding a new vehicle, medical bills that won't be covered by our insurance and car seats for the boys. Anything will help but all I'm looking for is support :) thank you everyone love, The Barretts
Hi Kylee, I work for Diono, a local car seat company in Puyallup. We've read your story and we are so happy to hear that everyone is safe and ok after your accident. We would like to give you seats to replace the ones that were damaged in the accident. Please call Diono Customer Care at 1.855.463.4666. Thank you for using your experience to educate others on how important car seat safety and proper installations are!
Praying for all of you! What a great message you share with your story. You will save lives by being so open. I hope your sweet boys heal soon and are comforted. Seeing your littlest one with a broken leg breaks my heart. I have a 19 month old, so this really hit home. We also were hit by a drunk driver when I was pregnant. Accidents happen so fast. Many believe they can prevent them and have a false sense of safety. I have my little one rear facing also! Not many know this is recommended. You did a great job protecting your babies. You probably feel guilty, but your decision to buckle your children in correctly prevented worse! What a hero you are. Your story will save others. Again wishing you and your babies well. I know mentally this hurts also. I pray all pain is comforted, and that God helps others meet your needs!
Bless it Be the Name of the Lord he protected you all God Bless
Glad everyone is safe and healing well. What a wonderful message you are sharing with everyone.
This literally brought me to tears I am so sorry this happened to you and your babies love and prayers your way and I will donate as soon as my check hits....praying still for your little trooper!!!
