DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) — A father is searching for the Good Samaritans who came to the aid of his children and their mother after a crash on the George Bush Turnpike Sunday.
Three-year-old Jordyn is already flashing a smile just one day after being released from the hospital. Her 4-year-old brother Julian is facing a much longer recovery.
Father Larry love says his son remains sedated, with damage to his clavicle, his internal organs, and possibly his spine. “My whole life… I just broke down. It was the hardest thing ever,” said Love. “He’s not moving, eyes not open. It’s been three days and i haven’t heard nothing from my son.”
Serena Thompson was driving their two children home from Chuck E. Cheeses Sunday evening on the President George Bush Turnpike near Jupiter road when state troopers said another car cut her off.
“She got scared and overexagerated. And when she did that, she hit the median, car flipped over,” said Love. “That’s when she got ejected.”
Thompson was badly injured and unconscious, but Love said witnesses pulled over and came to the aid of his daughter, who was trapped inside the mangled car. “They got her out of the car, they got her, they held her,” said Love.
Love said he would like to find those Good Samaritans to thank them. “It’s just lets you know that there are nice people out there that actually care,” said Love.
State troopers are also looking for the driver who prompted the crash and they said he may face a charge of making an improper lane change.
“I really just want an apology, just know that you hurt people. People are seriously injured,” said Love. I know people are in a rush to wherever they have to go, but it’s not worth hurting anyone.”
