    A very close freind of mine was just involved in a serious traffic crash. the THI classified it as a traffic homicide crash because of his severe injuries and EMS's prognosis. His name is chris, he was in the process of changing lanes in his 03 cobra when he spun out and hit a palm tree. the drivers side door was the point of impact. it took 30 min for ems to get him out of his vehicle with the jaws of life. He was then airlifted to the hospital where he is in ICU. Chris had just returned from iraq a few months ago and had just turned 21 tonight when he crashed, please, send your prayers out for him tonight as he is in surgery and pray that he can pull through this.
