VALLEY SPRINGS (CBS13) – Officers try to carry slightly extra gentle into the lifetime of a younger boy whose mom was killed in a head-on crash with a DUI suspect.
Back on Dec. 23, Chelsea Lund and her Eight-year-old son Kaiden had been out on a drive alongside Pettinger Road within the Burson space of Calaveras County when their automobile was hit head-on by a pickup truck.
California Highway Patrol stated the pickup was attempting to overhaul one other pickup truck illegally.
Chelsea, 27, was pronounced useless at a hospital in San Andreas. Kaiden was taken to the UC Davis Medical Center, affected by main accidents.
Kaiden needed to spend the following 18 days within the hospital – that means he missed Christmas. Knowing this, officers from CHP’s San Andreas division determined to do one thing particular for Kaiden.
With the assistance of the Calaveras Consolidated Fire Department and Kaiden’s grandparents, the boy was given a particular tour of a CHP patrol automobile – and was given a make-up Christmas filled with presents.
“Our goal in telling Kaiden’s story is that you will always keep Kaiden and Chelsea in your thoughts and prayers and help us spread the message that intoxicated and/or reckless driving has lifelong consequences for EVERYONE involved,” CHP San Andreas wrote in a Facebook submit.
Kaiden is anticipated to make a full restoration from his accidents, household says. A GoFundMe arrange for him and his household has raised greater than $17,000.
The drivers of each pickup vehicles are suspected of driving below the affect, CHP says.
