stephanie stone savanna opt Her Kids Were With Her, When Drunk Driver Killed This Mother: One Child Still In Hospital

Last Tuesday, a drunk driver decided it would be okay for him to drive 80 mph, drunk, uninsured, on a suspended license. He ran through a red light and killed  Stephanie Stone, and injured both her children, Savanna (pictured above with Mom Stephanie) and Brandon. A bowling fundraiser is being held next Tuesday, November 9th at 6:00 pm at the Town & Country Bowling Alley, on Wayne Rd. in Westland to help her husband and children.

Savanna has been released from the hospital but their step Father, Bill Stone, has been by Brandon’s side at the C.S. Mott’s ICU at the University of Michigan. Brandon suffered severe head injuries and a ruptured diaphragm in the accident.stone family 2 opt Her Kids Were With Her, When Drunk Driver Killed This Mother: One Child Still In Hospital

The man who caused all this pain was arraigned  in Washtenaw County on 10 separate felonious counts including second degree murder for taking Stephanie’s life. This was his fourth DUI, and Operating on a Suspended, and was already on probation for felonious assault in a separate case.

Stephanie had no life insurance and the family is now down to just one income, that at the present time is not providing anything due to the fact that Bill has to be at the hospital with Brandon.stone family 3 jpg opt Her Kids Were With Her, When Drunk Driver Killed This Mother: One Child Still In Hospital

    Per Bill Stone’s request. Please disregard the Key Bank donation information. Thanks!!

    Many prayers still needed for the emotional well being of the family as well as Brandon’s continued steps towards a full recovery. He has a long road ahead of him and all the prayers are put to good use!!

    This is sooo sad. I have to work that night, where can donations be sent to or dropped off at? I will keep the family in my prayers. Also, Channel 4 had a video on their web site that a witness caught on his camera phone of the guy trying to get away, which he pointed out to the police and they caught him.
