    "hit and run" at pennridge high school

    Never thought id ever come home to say that a middle school principle hit a sophomore when he was crossing the street this morning. You can see the full story at www.6abc.com. The guy is in critical condition, never expectes to be hit by his old principle he had only 2 years ago. It was at 6:45am everyone keeps asking if he was going early for help or whatever, but thats when school actually starts for us here at pennridge. Please keep him in your prayers, he is suffering brain and head injuries. We could all use a prayer now.

    Also some things on there may be wrong. I think he's 16, he is a sophmore, and yes, its always pitch black here in the morning. Prayers for his family, for dr. Kantes ( the driver and principle) and all who were deeply effected. This wasnt a hit and run either, she pulled over to help the guy until help came. It wasnt a bus hit and run like other rumors say. The bus driver stopped to help the guy. It was Dr. Kantes, but shes not the type we'd expect to do this.

    Thanks for all the good thoughts.

    Grief, VMK, that is a rather bad start for the year. Prayers for the child, the Dr, the family and the principal and student body. Prayers for strength, guidance, peace and level heads-and for the doctor to discern the problems and the child to make a full recovery.

    Please keep us posted.

    How sad. Prayers that he recovers. Prayers for his family. Prayers for the Principal.

    My DH was hit riding his bike when he was 11 years old. Always the drivers fault however my DH darted out from behind two parked cars from an alley. Car couldn't have seen him and never had a chance to stop.

    After 4 months in the hospital my DH recovered, from being unconscious and in critical condition. Hoping this young man has the same good fortune.

    Re: "hit and run" at pennridge high school

    Right now, it is really important for prayers because from now till tomorrow if the swelling in his brain doesnt go down he will have to go into surgery. He also has a broken pelvis. And other little scratches. We are hoping for a strong recovery. Its just awful to start the new year like this. No one expects him back to school till next year since he has brain damage and a broken pelvis. We were told that he eventually will come back to the school, just not any time soon. Thanks for yhe prayers and keep sending them ricky's way to hope he wont have to get surgery. Ill update more tomorrow when. We find out more in period 5/6.
