In the early morning hours of Saturday, May 30, 2015, Officer Corey Owens was directing traffic around a flooded road in Lubbock, Tx. He had positioned his marked police vehicle, a 2009 Ford Crown Victoria, in the westbound lanes of 4th Street with the emergency lighting activated. He was standing just west of his vehicle when a drunk driver struck his vehicle. The impact caused the marked unit to collide with Officer Owens. He sustained serious injuries and was transported to University Medical Center. Officer Owens and his wife, Felicia, have two young boys, Colsyn & Cardyn. We would like to ask our blue family to help support another as they will be facing a long road and life changing road to recovery. Every $1 will help, along with all good thoughts and prayers sent their way.
UPDATE FROM THE FAMILY: Thank you to all of those who have donated to our family. Mark Twain said kindness is our universal language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see. This weekend, we have seen it, heard it and continue to feel it right now as we go through this difficult time in our lives. I cannot begin to express how thankful, Corey, Colsyn, Cardyn and I are for your sacrifices and your donations to our family. Your financial donations are allowing us to focus on what is most important in life which is life itself, Corey's life, and we are truly truly grateful. Felicia and Corey Owens
