Ethan was in a motorcycle accident on Gene Snyder at the Beulah church road exit between 7 and 8 pm.
There was a chain of events that no one could have ever known was going to happen.
As a mother this is my worst nightmare.
I was in his truck with Preston driving to Mt Washington to drop a bike off. Doug was also riding with us. A vehicle in front of me stopped abruptly and I did everything possible to miss hitting him. Ethan was a great distance behind me and I am not sure how it unfolded for him but I clipped the passenger side of the truck/pontoon and the he rear ended me on the drivers side/tailgate.
The driver of the truck/pontoon left the scene of the accident after standing with me for a few moments while I held my son and was trying to comfort Brianna.
Brianna Milligan was a passenger on the bike as well, she is extremely banged up as she was also thrown from the bike but thank God her injuries were not life threatening.
We are currently at University of Louisville trauma center. He is in the ICU.
He has a very traumatic brain injury and we do not know at this time what lies ahead. Ethan also dislocated his elbow and has some torn ligaments and a broken wrist -all of which will require surgeries in the future.
We are taking life minute by minute. As thats all we can do. I trust that the lord is watching over him and I dont know what he has in store for us but I am praying for a miracle that this boy be healed from head to toe. Please keep our family, his son Preston and anyone else directly impacted in your prayers we need them more than ever. We have a long road ahead of us, I will not leave his side, I am overriden with guilt and heart ache. One thing is for certain I will be bringing him home the good lord willing
Ethan will have huge medical bills now and for the unforeseeable future.
For whatever you're able to contribute, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
