Support Caleb Smith after head on car accident

On Monday April 29th Caleb Smith was in a terrible car accident while driving outside Salem Oregon. As Caleb crested a blind hill approaching Salem, he was struck by an oncoming vehicle who was attempting to pass a string of cars. With no time to react, both vehicles struck each other head on in a violent collision.

Caleb was rushed to the Salem hospital with significant facial injuries as well as severe back trauma leaving his lower back shattered requiring the fusion of multiple vertebrae and other significant reconstructing procedures. 

Caleb and his fiancee Kirsten are the proud parents of a newborn baby boy, Clay, and are in need of funding to help cover immediate expenses (mortgage, student loans, childcare, etc) while both are unable to work due to this tragic accident.

It is impossible to understand the long term impact this accident will have on Caleb and his family.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity in this time of need. It really does mean the world to Caleb, Kirsten & Clay
