Olivia's Tragedy

Olivia Canelos and her boyfriend Cole Ransom were heading westbound on Hickman road on a motorcycle when they were struck from the side by a vehicle. Cole landed on the windshield of another vehicle and was knocked to the ground, while Olivia flew clear over the car and hit her head on the curb, many feet away. After Olivia hit her head, she was instantly knocked out and the pressure in her brain put her into a coma. Olivia’s brother gave her CPR on the scene and both her and Cole were rushed to the hospital. Cole was lucky and only suffered a deep gash to his lower left leg and a hairline fracture to the ankle, while Olivia is in much worse condition. Olivia has a broken sternum, fractured cranium, tibia and fibula, and multiple fractures in her femur. Olivia is going through extensive surgeries and treatments, but we need as much help as we can get. Any donations to help pay for her medical bills would help greatly to relieve the pressure and stress on her family and friends.
