We have an update on the two children critically injured in a crash over a week ago on Magnolia Avenue that killed their grandfather and involved two suspects who have been charged for drag racing and other charges.
Eleven-year-old Gage and his 6-year-old sister Hadley are in East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. Gage could be released from the hospital this weekend after suffering a broken pelvis and other injuries but Hadley suffered a broken neck, jaw, pelvis and arm and there’s no word on when she will be released.
Family member Shawn East says they expect both children to make a full recovery and says what the two children need most are prayers.
Through efforts in a gofundme, https://www.gofundme.com/f/please-help-nikki-and-her-kids?qid=7fe044d35bf2c420fa7e8a6932df558c the family was given nearly $20,000 that will go towards the children’s medical expenses.
A few Tennessee Volunteer Football players stopped by to see the kids with helmets, shirts and other gifts.
