A grieving mom is on a quest to find a group of people who stopped to form a prayer circle on the road after a deadly car crash took her son’s life back in December.
“I’m hanging in there,” said Valerie Conn, whose 28-year-old son, Justin Conn, was killed. “It was a terrible accident.”
The crash unfolded on Florida’s I-295 on Dec. 31, 2016 when a 2002 Mustang attempted to pass a semi-truck. Ross and his friend, 29-year-old Christina Ross, were killed after the Mustang reportedly got caught underneath the tractor trailer, but a third passenger in the car named Vic Williams survived, WJAX-TV reported.
Valerie Conn called her son and his friends “the three amigos,” as she recalled the tragic events of that fateful night.
It was at the scene of the horrific accident, though, that Conn said a group of strangers showed up and joined hands in prayer — and she believes their efforts helped save Williams’ life.
“I don’t know who they are. Your prayers helped rescue Vic from this horrible accident,” Conn told WJAX-TV. “The prayer circle, it gave me a form of relief. I feel as if I was there and there was nothing I could do, I would definitely be on my knees praying for him.”
Williams reportedly had to have a rod placed in his left femur and through his pelvic area as a result of the accident.
A fundraiser will be held in Florida on March 26 to help pay for his medical expenses, and Conn is hopeful that the individuals who took part in the prayer circle will be located so that they can attend.
The Conn family previously released a statement after Justin Conn’s death, saying he “was very loved and full of life,” with neighbors and those who knew him lamenting the tragic loss. Read more about the accident here.
