Help My Parents After Fatal Accident

On January 1st our parents, Jose "Toty" Gutiérrez and Rosa Quevedo-Gutiérrez, and grandmother, Juana Medero, left North Georgia and headed back home to Central Florida. On the way they had problems with their van and had to call a tow truck to pick them up. In the early hours of January 2nd, while on the Florida Turnpike headed southbound, almost to I-4, the tow truck driver lost control, and they hit the guardrail and rolled multiple times. Our parents and grandmother were all in the backseat. Our grandmother sustained critical injuries and yesterday afternoon she quietly went to heaven with my grandfather. Our father has endured two surgeries thus far to fix his broken bones and still requires more. He remains in ICU in a medically induced coma with a breathing tube so he can rest after his surgeries. My Dad has his own mechanic shop for over 45 years. He has been the sole provider for our family. He's extremely active at 67, always working on his home and playing with his grandchildren. Sadly he will never be able to do all the things he loves to do the way he used to. He broke his femur in multiple places, fractured his pelvis, got a compound fracture on his right arm and completely shattered his right elbow. Our mom thankfully sustained only minor injuries but has been left to deal with all the medial decisions and has been trying to figure out what to financially. Mortgage, utilities, insurace, etc... His hospital bills are already at a substantial amount. Please help them be able to focus on both their recoveries and rehabilitation. He is looking at roughly 18 months of rehabilitation possibly not being able to work again. We deeply appreciate any donations and sincerely ask for your prayers. Thank you, Their children Jose, Nioria, and Alexandra
