Fundraiser for child hit by car in Peculiar

PECULIAR – On May 7, 2014, in Peculiar, MO, a family was devastated when a car struck their 6-year-old son. The child was riding his bike when the accident occurred and suffered a serious head injury. He was life flighted to Children’s Mercy hospital in critical condition. He has been moved out of intensive care, but his recovery will take lots of time and care. Katie Reynolds, owner of Katie’s Café in Peculiar, is hosting a fundraiser for the family to help with the mounting medical bills. The fundraiser will be on Friday, May 30 from 4 – 8 pm. Katie’s Café, along with the Peculiar Police, Firefighters, Boy Scout Troops, Rufti’s Tropical Snow, A-Z Petting Zoo, Peculiar Elementary School and PTA, and many more local supporters will be there. There will be food, family fun, free giveaways, raffle items, shirts, and more. All of the money raised will be given to Johnston/Young Family.
Any businesses still waning to participate are encouraged to contact Katie Kalinka at the Cafe. More info can also be found at the Facebook page, Caring is the Key for Alexander.
He continues to make progress since the accident. He is responding to stimuli in therapy and is even responding to familiar voices.
No charges are expected to be filed in the case as this was truly a terribly tragic accident.
