Matt was in an auto accident this morning. His car is totaled. He was on 95 going south and someone cut him off and ran him off the road into the woods. He was taken to the VCU Medical College in Richmond to their Trauma Center. (Richmond, VA) Hospital called me and just by chance my husband was off work taking 1/2 a day off and was in Petersburg or somewhere near there. He went directly to the hospital. I called my older son, John, and he was working with his boss and couldn't leave right then until the job was over with. I did get a call from his fiancee and they are going to go to the hospital whenever John gets home. I called Matt's best friend, Nick and he and his wife are at the hospital now. I had to stay here because my cleaning girl was supposed to come and I always stay here when she is here. My cat gets too upset when she vacuums. Last thing I heard was he was bruised up and had a bad lip, other bruises and cuts, but no broken bones or internal injuries. His glasses broke and his spare are in his car, which was totaled. We don't know where the car is right now. They had to break the front windshield and cut the top off the car to get him out of it. The people who cut in front of him did stop and stay until the police got there and the ambulance. I don't know who got a ticket or anything about that part. The car was a 2005 Scion and he just got the car this year. It is a tiny car, so I'm not surprised that it was totaled. Any prayers you can give Matt that he will feel better will be appreciated. He has to spend the night at the hospital as a rule and won't be able to get home until tomorrow. I've been a wreck all day and I can't go to the hospital because I don't think my back will hold out with all the walking I would have to do. Matt is on vacation and only has to work Saturday, and I guess he will call in sick for that day. He can't drive until he gets new glasses if they can't find his older pair. Just heard from his friend, and he is going to get the spare glasses from the car right now and bring them back here. My husband has a car and truck and I don't go much, so Matt could take my husband's car and my husband could take my truck or his truck to work. I think my husband has taken the rest of the week off. If he hasn't, I'm sure he will. I don't know how to get to the hospital anyway, and I'm just too upset to be driving. Right now it is almost dark anyway. I guess he isn't in a room yet or they would call to give me the room number. Thanks in advance for your prayers. Hugs, Faye Matt is 25 years old and lives here with us.
