Teen in Critical Condition After Trying to Save Turtles

Accidents happen every day, but when that happen to you or a loved one, it can be devastating. The pain and turmoil that such an accident causes is even larger when the accident happens to one of your children.

A Lawrence, KA family has just had to deal with that hardship. Their 17 year old daughter was struck by a car in the afternoon. The young teenage girl saw two turtles trying to cross the road. In a moment of youthful compassion, she went to help the turtles to the other side of the road. Sadly, she never made it. A car being driven by a 36 year old woman struck her. She had to be flown to the hospital in critical condition. The hospital has stated that she is improving.

The woman who stuck the young teenager was charged with driving with a suspended license and no insurance.
