Blood drive held in Cedar Springs after fatal car accident

A frequent theme in this Ann Arbor car accident blog is the expense of treating injuries and the burden that can cause victims. In addition to the costs of medical care, sometimes other resources can be sparse, affecting a victim's access to treatment.

A serious car accident that took place in August in Cedar Springs, Michigan, claimed the life of a 16-year-old and left another teen with serious injuries. That teen almost bled to death and on Aug. 17 a blood drive took place in Cedar Springs so that the community could show their support.

Of course, hospitals need a constant and adequate supply of blood in order to treat victims of accidents and other patients. During the blood drive, the community recognized this need as so many people showed up to donate blood that some of them had to be turned away.

All in all, Michigan's Blood Mobile collected almost two dozen units of blood and invited those who were turned away to come back to another blood donation location.

The teenager who was seriously injured in the car accident is reportedly still recovering from a closed head injury. Another teen also suffered minor injuries in the crash.

After a car accident, it is important that the victims and their loved ones have access to the support that they need. This includes very tangible needs, such as blood and medical care, and the funding to pay for this, as well as intangible needs such as the love and support of community members.
