As for Tara, her injuries were so significant the family was not able to predict when she would be able to walk again. Tara’s injuries included a broken pelvic bone, cracks in neck vertebrate, and a broken wrist. Her daughter also obtained a broken wrist, two fractures in her jaw, and a broken hip.

The family was insured at the time of the crash. However, the medical bills have continued to pile with three individuals receiving treatment.

A GoFundMe page was set up to help the family.
