Manorville, NY – Mother of Boy Scout Injured by Drunk Driver Speaks Out
Manorville, NY (October 2, 2018) – A mother whose son was injured by the drunk driver who crashed into a group of boy scouts on Sunday, September 30, is recalling the conversation she had shortly after. Kristine Lynch called her son, Kaden, to check up on him only moments after the crash.
15-year-old Kaden is a sophomore at Riverhead High School, and he was recuperating from tissue injuries at his home in Calverton after being released from Stony Brook University Hospital. Kaden is one of four teens who were injured alongside 12-year-old Andrew McMorris who died after the incident.
Two other injured parties have been released from the hospital since the crash, and only one remains in the hospital as of today. Lynch believes that the only thing that saved her son and many others was their 30lb backpacks at the time. The boy’s mother believes that this has been a rightfully life-changing event for her son.
