Prayer Request, This guy is my direct boss: Girl, 8, Killed in Crash; Sisters & Mother Injured
Wowt.com ^ | May 21, 2012

Posted on 05/22/2012 12:00:20 PM PDT by US Navy Vet

An 8-year old girl died in an early evening crash Monday in Ralston. Her two sisters and mother were injured.

Omaha Police say Julia Brown of Papillion was killed when the van she was riding in was struck from behind by a pickup at 72nd and Main Street at 5:40pm.

Emily Brown, 10, and Madeline Brown, 13, and their mother Susan M. Brown, 44, were injured in the crash. Their injuries are non-life threatening.

The Honda minivan was stopped at a traffic light when, according to witnesses, a pickup that had been driving erratically and at a high rate of speed hit them from behind and pushed the vehicle through the intersection.

It had struck another van moments before, according to Omaha Police.

The Omaha driver of the Ford pickup, Rodney D. Watkins, was taken to Creighton University Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Prayers for all involved. I suppose God had different plnas for the little 8 year old... and His plans are so much greater than anything we can see at times like these.

Praying for your boss. That has to be very hard to know you caused this accident. Praying God will sustain and give comfort to all who are family and friends of the involved.

NO. Rodney Watkins in the pickup rear-ended Mrs Brown and her children. The boss, Mr Brown, apparently wasn't with them at the time.

Sincere condolences to the Brown family, and prayers for their strength and comfort in the days ahead, as well as for justice for the impaired driver who smashed their family.

Lord Jesus,

In the company of saints in Heaven we pray for the repose of the soul of Julia.

We also pray for the healing of Emily, Madeline, and Susan.

Be near them, Lord, and give the survivors healing and consolation.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen
