Over the weekend there was a terrible accident outside of my hometown of Eudora, KS on K10 highway.
A family, grandparents and 2 grandchildren were struck head on at full speed by a 24 year old who crossed the large grassy median.
The 24 year old died on scene. The 5 year old grandson was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The grandparents and younger granddaughter were seriously injured and are still in the hospital.
The family that was hit are distant cousins of mine. The little boy is the son of a cousin I graduated with. It just hits so close to home.
It was discovered today that the 24 year old that caused the accident had meth and marijuana in his system.
Because of a young person’s poor choices a family is without their 5 year old son today.
It breaks my heart. And makes me want to take everyone I love and hold them in my arms and not let them go out into the world!
