June 11, 2007


An 8-year-old boy was in fair condition this morning at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., where he was taken following an accident Sunday morning on Kansas Highway 10 southwest of Lawrence.

A condition update was not available this morning on his mother, Willow R. Jack, 26, said Dennis Minich, spokesman at the Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan.

According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, Willow Jack was driving a Mitsubishi sport utility vehicle west on K-10 near 27th street when it rolled several times after leaving the road. Willow Jack was ejected from the vehicle.

Haskell Indian Nations University spokeswoman Lori Tapahonso said this morning that Willow Jack is a Haskell student. A highway patrol accident report listed the pair's hometown as Fort Hall, Idaho.

I do not have an 8 year old, but I still hope they are o.k.

The name "Willow Jack" rang a bell when I read it, and I remembered seeing her photo in the LJWorld several months back. Here it is:

I hope she and her son recover. It's a shame that she wasn't wearing a seatbelt.
