The friends and family of Jason and Carolin Shepard are uniting to raise money to help with medical and other costs related to his accident.

On August 14th Jason and Carolin Shepard's life changed dramatically. Jason was due in to work at 8 a.m. on Tuesday morning. Since it was pouring rain out he left early to give himself extra time. He was traveling North on the highway about 1/2 way to work when it looks like he hydro planed, and the passenger side of his car slammed into the end of a guard rail. Unfortunately, unlike some guard rails which have their ends buried in the ground, this one ended above the ground and went through the car pushing the passenger side of the car into Jason. The roof collapsed around him and the car ended up partly in the South bound lanes. And this is where the miracles begin, (aside from it being the passenger side and not drivers side that went into the rail).
A policeman, who happened to be making a U turn from North bound to South bound saw the car within seconds of the accident and was calling for help immediately. When he got to Jason the rest of the car was soaking wet but Jason was still dry.

Though the entire car was destroyed Jason's seat was not. He does have a gash across his forehead where the roof collapsed but it collapsed around him.
The accident happened within minutes of one of the best Neuro Trauma Centers all over.

There was an article and pictures of the car in the local paper if anyone wants to look.

As if this is not difficult enough to get through, Carolin is due with their first baby in November. Jason is now stable and getting better but as you can imagine, it is going to take some time and some effort to get back to where he was. This fund is set up to help the three of them through this rough time, so Carolin can continue to be there to help and know that things are taken care of.
