Our family has suffered a great loss. On July 15th Justin Loring and his family (Sarah, Liam, Noah and Lexi) were returning to his mother’s (Lisa Swisher) house after a fun-filled day of sightseeing while on vacation. Unfortunately, they would never make it. Just a few miles from their destination, they were struck by an 18-wheeler. The details of the accident are still under investigation, but the driver was charged with vehicular homicide 2nd degree x2, driving too fast for conditions, and failure to obey a traffic control device.
Justin and Sarah both succumbed to their injuries and died at the scene. The three young children were transported to the nearest hospital. I am happy to report that all three survived, though not unscathed. Noah is getting better every day but suffered the most significant injuries. Liam and Lexi are slowly recovering as well. Each of them will have a tough fight back but they are strong and should make full recoveries. We are very fortunate that there is so much family available to help and support them through this unspeakable tragedy.
We are asking for your help. It will take time for all the circumstances to get worked out but they will need our help. Medical expenses, travel, relocation and daily expenses will start to mount quickly. All monies raised will be used by Lisa Swisher, Justin's mother & the children's grandmother. Ensuring that their recovery, both physical and emotional, goes as smoothly as it can.
Thank you, and God Bless,
