I hope that this site will answer questions on what happened and is still happening with hannah. Along with help with the overwhelming calls and messages of whats happening.
Sunday 26th of june. About a quarter to 8 we left the campground, hannah and justin were in the lead in one car. And the rest of us were following behind in other vehicles. We stopped to get gas and hannah and justing kept trucking along to get home. Then the unthinkable happened. Hannah crossed the center line of the two lane hwy in new london WI (hwy 45, 2 hours from home) she struck the on coming semi. From that point they ended up in the ditch. Justin got himself out and in some miracle he seen ausin (a friend that was camping with us) from there is when i (paige, hannahs sister) got the call that there had been an accident and i needed to get there fast. Still at the gas station i didnt know what was going on. Then firetruck flew by and my heart dropped. I followed the firetruck as close as i could. It was the longest ride of my entire life. Made ot to the sence and the site did not look good. Firefighters had cut hannah out. She was pinned by the steering wheel. The front airbags did not go off. From that point everything was a blur for me. They transported hannah and justin to ThedaCare in Neenah WI. Justing was relased after being looked over. Walked away bruised and scrapped up. Hannah was not that lucky. Lucky to be alive. Hannah got out alive with broken bones in her left leg, severely bruised liver and spleen. Bruised lungs. She went threw surgery on her leg. And was placed into the ICU to monitor her spleen.
Monday she went in and had a filter placed in her vein to help prevent blood clots to travel up, if she were to occur any with her not moving.
