Hey Amarillo! Let’s Help Kaleb Collins with #KCSTRONG
In the early hours on January 15th, Kaleb Collins parents got a call that he was hit by a drunk driver.
Authorities said Kaleb and his friend Brenton were walking north on coulter near buffalo wild wings around 2 am. Kimberlee and her passenger Melissa stopped to pick up Kaleb and Brenton to give them a ride.
Kimberlee had her emergency flashers on but noticed that a car was traveling pretty fast in her rear view mirror. Brandon and passenger Jaelin collided with Kimberlee.
Brandon and Jaelin were taken to a hospital with non life-threatening injuries. Kimberlee and Melissa were uninjured. Speed and alcohol are factors in the collision.
However, Kaleb was rushed to the hospital in critical condidtion.
A GoFundMe account was set up for Kaleb to raise funds for his medicial bill. The family is also asking for prayers.
Every parent’s nightmare happened to Mary and Kirk Collins the morning of Janurary 15 after receiving a phone call that their son was in emergency surgery after being hit by a drunk driver.
Kaleb has endured various procedures and surgeries these past few days. He will have a very long road of healing and recovery.
Please continue to pray for Kaleb and his family. He is resilient and so full of life. If you feel led to do so, helping them out financially with what will be significant medical bills, as well as everyday expenses will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you and God bless
