Richmond, CA-Car accident


We are the uncle and aunt to Alyssa, Mariano and Lisa.  We have set up this GoFundMe with permission of parents Karl and Brandi.

09/04/20 9:30pm Alyssa works at Target, a senior in high school, pays for her own car, insurance and clothes and helps with her 12 year old sister, 5 year old brother and her 1 year old sister. She was off of work and texted her mom she was going to get chips for her brother because promised she him as he had shots that day and told her mom she was buying her some chicken. She texted around 9:49am she was on her way home. She was not home by 10:25 so mom called her and had that mothers instinct...and an off duty San Quentin Officer, Sergeant William (Fred) Eberly, who was first on scene and kept her breathing answered after mom repeatedly called and told her about the car accident. Brandi begged for Alyssa to hold on. Karl and Brandi rushed in the car but freeway was packed because of the accident so Karl left the drivers seat and ran over a mile to the sight on the freeway. He said when he saw the car it looked like it rolled multiple times and he couldn’t believe how Alyssa made it. The car did not roll but had heavy impacts. No witnesses. The first person they saw was the officer they spoke to on the phone but didn’t know it was him at the time.  They would not let him in ambulance because they were trying to keep her breathing.

5 hour surgery to decrease swelling and insert a metal plate because of fractured skull and fractures imbedded in brain.

Today they will slow sedation to see how she responds

This will be a long process for the family of 6 and the money will help support the family at this time so the parents can be by her side.

Thank you and we will update daily.
