I am trying to find out any information about the victims of a motorcycle-minivan accident that happened Friday morning on my way to work. The young couple on the motorcycle were thrown and I am not sure if they survived. I have scoured the papers, internet, and tv for any information. I have called the local fire departments but they cannot give me any information. If anyone knows anything about this accident please post here. The image of those 2 young people being thrown through the air will be forever engraved in my mind, I would just like to find out how they are. I instantly felt a pit in my stomach and will be praying for everyone involved.

All I have heard is that the girl was killed instantly and the guy was killed too. The 4 people in the minivan were taken into the hospital in critical care i believe. i have scoured everything too and can not find one thing about this accident. I also have heard there were rumors about alcohol being involved with the guy driving the motorcycle...keep in mind this is everything i have just heard from unprofessional sources. take it as you will and hopefully we can find out the truth soon here

I too have been looking for info. The girl on the bike was definitely without any vital signs when 2 ladies (angels for all they did) started cpr. They got her breathing and a pulse. I left when the paramedics got there but I had a horrible feeling for her. I wasn't aware that the people in the van were that injured. Wow! I cant believe nothing has been reported regarding this. I am just keeping an eye out. Praying for all involved!

I am the aunt of the 16 yr old female victim. She is at Mercy Medical Center in ICU. Tomorrow is a big day for Karyssa Kestranek, she is having multiple procedures done.
All prayers and thoughts are welcome. Please only family members at the hospital. They are NOT a couple. He is a 19+ man WITHOUT a license or plates who lured my niece onto his motorcycle without a helmet on her way to school while he was believed to be intoxicated with a bad record. We are being told he was given his keys by another individual after he became beligerent. The family would like to thank Melinda Frank who was one of the angels who gave cpr to our baby, sorry we did not get the name of the other angel but our gratitude goes out to her as well. Karyssa has an opportunity of survival because of these brave women. There will be a benefit set up at any Huntington National bank within the next few days along with a future benefit through the "Big Mo" radio show. God bless you all and thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

This is Melinda Frank. The other ladies first name was Julia. I do not know her last name. The deputy investigating the case has my name and number if you need it for anything. I was unaware that she had made it but should have left my name and number with the staff at Mercy but but I was not thinking to clearly at the time. I see her young beautiful face every time I close my eyes, my prayers are with you all.

I had no idea she was that young. I figured around 20. I am praying for her. I haven't been able to get my mind off of her all weekend. I got there right after it happened and stopped to help with cpr if needed but the 2 ladies there were fearless and amazing! I am so happy to hear that she is fighting. I have a 14 yo that "knows" her from myspace and mutual friends. Thanks for posting and letting us know, I am sure we aren't the only people wondering. Praying for her!!!!

To karyessa's aunt.
Thank you so much for posting about your niece. My wife and I live very nearby the spot of the accident. We drive by it many times a day. We have not been able to get her out of our mind. We have been searching for information, but it doesn't seem to be anything in the news. My wife has called all the hospitals ,fire depts and tomorrow was planning on calling the radio stations. We really pray that everything goes well for karyessa. Please keep posting if there is new information. We have 2 little girls and cannot imagine the pain your family is feeling.

Wow, my thoughts and prayers go out to your neice tomorrow. I am very glad to hear of the nice people who helped at the scene. Since clearly my sources were semi-inaccurate, what happened to the unlicensed motorycle driver?

Well this goes to all im hearing lots of stories and i know there is only one story and i feel like sharing how many prayers i say each night for her and her family i didnt know her but one thing is is that nobody deserves to go through what this family is going through and i feel lots of sorrow and pain for her and her family this is a very sad situation and hopefully this is an eye opener for all and i honestly think people should stop making comments and realize it could of happened to any one and its not her fault at all and thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends and a miricle will come out of this situation and everything will be ok

I am friends with the other girl who stopped and gave her CPR. I can provide you with her name if necessary, email me at cmille2@kent.edu. She has also been looking for information and couldn't find anything. I searched and found this page. I was so relieved to find out that the child had survived. All of my prayers are being sent to her and her family.

My name is julia, and i was helping melinda give cpr. i can tell you that every hour since friday morning, my heart has ached not knowing what happened to Karyssa, and not a second has gone by that I haven't thought about her. when i heard about this site and that she was alive, i felt a hope in my heart that has not existed in nearly a year. i lost my mom last october to leukemia, and to watch this young girl suffer brought back so much heart-ache. i will be praying for her and thinking of her. as melinda said, the police have my name and contact info if you need anything at all. please do not hesitate to call. i will keep karyssa and your family in my thoughts.

to clarify: there was a young woman with a child inside the van. they were without injuries but very very shaken up.

it would be nice if people stopped slandering the young man on the bike. noone knows anything about him and he would never intentionally hurt her. and yes they were a couple and he loves her very much!!! her mother was aware that they were together and was very supportive of the relationship. he did not lure her to do anything and it is not right for anyone to be talking about him in such away. he is very kind hearted and would never intentionally hurt anyone. he is also suffering and is still in icu on a ventilater with multiple injuries! please everyone stop making judgements on him. IT IS NOT RIGHT!!!! i know for a fact he is not worried about his self when he comes to for short periods of time. his only concern is karyssa!

Concerned citizen if this boy cared any #1 Karyssa would have been wearing a helmet but no that selfish excuse for a human being kept it for himself #2 He picked her up while being intoxicated #3 he doesnt even have a license to drive. So before you sit there and defend him,you need to realize that Karyssa is where she is because of him and his careless acts!!And please spare me on that thing you say is love they have because she is 16 and hes an adult I have a few words for that and love is not one of them. But I am praying for both of them to get better so he can recieve the consequences he deserves and so she can be with her family again. My thoughts and prayers are with Karyssa's family.
