It is aggravating that the Chronicle thinks that Dana What's-her-face and her arrest is news worthy, but what happened to these boys is of no interest. In the community of La Porte, I suspect there are far more people concerned for Zack and Brandon, than the law-breaking Dana Woodruff.

My co-worker and myself were just talking about this... How we dont ever hear of things like this happening in our community, but let some drug dealer shoot someone in 5th ward and we will hear about it for weeks. I would have thought this would have been news worthy, considering so many people are concerned and worried.

This situation stinks for EVERYONE!

When I was 10 (I think) I got lost going home from the baseball park. It got really dark. I got scared and started crying. I rode my bike into a big street and was hit by a young man (with his date) all dressed up on the way to their prom!

Terrible terrible terrible. I was fine but I cannot imagine what that teenage driver must have have went through! This is a TERRIBLE thing to happen. I truly hope everyone comes out okay. I really, really do.

Thank you so much for the updates. I check in regularly on this thread with so much hope that the boys will make a full recovery. I have been praying for the boys, their families and all involved in this horrible accident. God Bless all of them. Please post how we can help in any way.

OH. AND it is total BS that Dana's story makes the news. She mouthed off to the police and caught the ramifications of her actions. I ALSO did that once, but I was a teenager (not sure what her excuse is)...

A coworker of mine lives in the neighborhood right there and asked if I'd heard anything. I have 3 boys.. 12, 12 and 13. I am shocked there hasn't been an article or anything on the news about this. This has been the only source of information.

My prayers are with the families of these two young boys. I can't imagine what you are going through. I also pray for the driver of the vehicle involved. I have hit a pedestrian walking to school before..and he was perfectly fine.. but it rattled me for a very long time.

God Bless..

I agree totally!! How aweful it is that this is our only source of information!! Dont get me wrong I am thankful but also a little Angry! Two young boys with their little bodies fighting to make it thru and noone out there (media) seems to care..But dont let us miss about a random traffic stop or road construction going on! Wish I had a source to really complain to! I am glad to see though how a community can come together and pray for someone we dont know and have never met. I have been on here the entire day waiting for a update hopefully soon!! God Bless all who is taking the time to care!!

Ok, I am friends with the mom of Zachery and I have talked to other friends of hers. I also talked to my friend, a La Porte police officer and he said there was ONE bike they were riding and the vehicle that hit them was a 4X4. The person that hit him was going slow to turn into the neighborhood and did not see the boys. Both boys are in ICU at Hermann. Zachery has bleeding on the brain and also swollen, broken neck, broken arm, blood clot close to his spinal cord and is on a ventilator. His friend Brandon from what I have been told also has brain bleeding, swollen brain, multiple fractures in his neck and a broken leg. TThey both have halos to keep their necks stable and are still in critical condition. I have a friend who is a nurse at Hermann and will be able to give me more information when she returns to work tomorrow. Please continue to pray.
Thank you so much for your accuate info.I am praying diligently for these boys more because I happen to know them both. If I am not mistaken, it is Zachery Green and Brandon "Tanner", not Chandler. Anyway, I know and love both of these babies. Please continue to inform. Thank you

I have been on here and trying to keep updated! I just wanted to throw a suggestion out there. I know there is alot of people praying for these boys and thought maybe if someone had the time and accessability to the updates that they could make a facebook or myspace profile for the boys. That way we could stay informed and also concerned and praying people could leave their prayers with the family. There was this lady that had a child injured and she set one up and said that on days reading the prayers and outpour of love was all that kept her going. Like I said just a suggestion and would also let the family know how many people are praying for Zachaery and Brandon.
