In a follow-up on last week’s article from the Salt Lake Tribune, KSL gives us more details about Lindsay Dyches and her 7-year-old daughter, Presley, accident where they were hit head-on by a drunk driver. Presley was in intensive care until, but is now said to be recovering.
The child had intensely critical injuries including broken ribs and internal bleeding. Lindsay was also injured, with a broken left arm and ankle, which will not allow her to work for 3-6 months. Her husband will have to take over the responsibility of running the family business as well as taking care of their three children without her physical help.
The two were on their way to Presley’s school, where she was excited about a playmate planned for the following day. But they didn’t make it to school. They ended up in the hospital. Presley’s classmates and friends gathered together to make a “get well soon” card while she was in the hospital.
The drunk driver, 33-year-old Aaron Moorman crossed into the wrong lane on SR 198 in the morning. Jen Southwick, a friend of Lindsay’s said, “It breaks my heart. I think especially that early in the morning, you think, ‘Oh, I’m just going to take my kids to school real quick.’ It’s not on your mind that you have to watch out for drunk drivers…It just makes you think twice … you never know what’s going to happen.”
Southwick speaks highly of Linsday and her family. We wish them both a speedy and full recovery, and
