Kristen Pechacek and her mom Joann were both seriously injured on Friday, July 20 when they were struck from behind by a drunk driver while waiting at a traffic signal in Eau Claire.
Kristen was in town for a softball tournament and they were heading back to their hotel from dinner. Despite broken ribs and a concussion, Kristen has been released but Joann had to be med-flighted to Mayo due to so many serious injuries and touchy surgeries needed.
Kristen is the goalie for the Phillips co-op team (varsity boys) and spent most of last season in the top 10 goallie postings at WiPH. She has also been with the girls TW program for the past two years.
We at WiPH send our prayers and best wishes for complete recoveries for Joann and Kristen.
