A Note from WTAMU Staff member Leonor Jenkins concerning her daughter Leah Jenkins, age 16.

On Feb. 4 after an unexpected ice storm, my daughters were riding home with a few friends from a church youth function. The driver hit a patch of black ice and lost control of his truck but was able to get it back under control and came to a stop on 1-40 just past the 1-27 interchange. Because of the spinning, all passengers bailed out of the vehicle and were sitting on the shoulder next to the pickup which had stalled out. A second vehicle came along and lost control of his vehicle hitting the truck and striking my daughter Leah, and the vehicle fled the scene of the accident leaving my daughter on the roadway under the pickup with serious injuries, (we have been told by the owner's insurance company that he had not paid his premiums, which means he had no insurance.) Leah suffered a fractured left femur, five fractures to her pelvis, a skull fracture and had her two front teeth knocked out, three other teeth in front were either broken or loosened, which require root canals to save them. She spent three weeks in the hospital and had two surgeries to repair her femur and pelvis. Our insurance covers only a portion of all her bills and nothing on her two missing teeth, which an oral surgeon told us would cost approximately $4,900.00 to put in two implants. Any help would be greatly appreciated and may God bless you for your thoughtfulness towards my daughter and our family.
