Boy, 8, in car wreck released from hospital

June 13, 2007


An 8-year-old Lawrence boy injured in a Sunday morning wreck was released from the hospital Tuesday while his mother, a Haskell Indian Nations University student, remains in stable condition at the Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan.

Nakeezaka Jack, a Broken Arrow School student, was released from Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., said his aunt, Dustina Abrahamson, of Lawrence.

"He's doing OK," she said.

His mother, Willow Jack, 29, was scheduled to have surgery on her leg and pelvic area today, Abrahamson said.

While traveling on their way to a pow wow ceremony at the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation in Mayetta, the two were injured when their vehicle left the road and rolled on the South Lawrence Trafficway near 27th Street.

Abrahamson said her sister told troopers that she had to swerve to avoid an oncoming van that was in her lane.

The family is grateful the pair survived after Willow Jack's husband and daughter died in a wreck two years ago, Abrahamson said.


Confrontation 10 years, 10 months ago

Wow! That's a lot of sadness for this family. I'm glad that these two are doing well.
