Ben Karr

Postby smitty » Wed Jun 23, 2010 3:13 pm

Had a phone call today. Ben Karr and LeAnne were riding their motorcycle and a car pulled out in front of them. They ended up hitting the car. Ben had to be life watched to Wichita and LeAnne is in Winfield hospital (I think).

Just wanted to let everyone know.

Don't really know at this point?

The person I talked to said "Ben had a broken hip, some ribs, and a concussion. LeAnne had some broken ribs and I don't remember and some other things.

When and if I find out more I will keep everyone posted.

Talked to Jon Hooper. He and Bryce went to see Ben.

I guess Ben has a rod in his leg, neck brace, some broken ribs, and is on a machine to help him breeze a little easier.

LeAnne is scraped and bruised and the Hoopers didn't think she had anything else going on.

HOLY CRAP!!!

Freakin' cagers piss me off. This kind of bullspit happens all the time, people not watchin the road or where they're going. The old, "I just didn't see them'" routine is getting old. It's not gonna fix Ben's hip!

*end rant*

I hope they have are going to be okay, and will keep Ben and LeAnne in my prayers.

Looks like Leanne is in a little worse shape then was previously thought.

To ALL of you:
Thamks so much for everything that you've done for my Lady and I. Not sure how to say what I feel I want to say, Before I understood what had even taking place lots of you had stepped up to the plate for us. I feel apart of something that I myself have put just a small amount of work into. I only can shake your hand one day and tell you thanks.

Just to let everyone know Leanne came home just to return the next day because she was having some trouble breathing.She should be home tomorrow(I hope)

Ben,

We all hope that you and Leanne get better and can make it back out to the course and league soon. Hope Leanne is doing better and can come home for good.

Keep us posted and good luck with everything.
