October 25, 2009 Started off as a great day this was the day of my mom and her twin brothers birthday but turned in to a horrific day. The afternoon on October 25 my family received some bad news… my Uncle Sean had been in a wreck and it wasn’t looking very good which had happened about a mile from my house. My Uncle was driving the tractor to the field when a truck driver ran into him hitting the back of the planter which saved his life. My uncle was thrown through the side of the tractor window and landed in the ditch the tractors tires with everything else laid a mile away from the scene the planter and tractor were torn to pieces my dad was one of the first to arrive at the scene people described it as if no one could have made it out alive my dad held my uncle holding his head that was cut open enough to have 17 staples put in. Luckily both made it out alive the truck driver was transported to the hospital with injuries later my family found out that the truck driver was under the influence of alcohol and had a background of seizures. Today my uncle is healthy and we thank God for watching over him each and every day.
