Eleven-year-old Maverik Lowe was airlifted to a Fort Wayne hospital after the crash and will require multiple surgeries.
The following update was posted to his GoFundMe page:
"He suffered broken ribs, busted knee cap, fractures in his arm and wrist. His leg is in pins and rods holding it together. He had plastic surgery already to put his face back together. He has slipped disks in his spine by his neck. He is a very, very strong kid. Along with medical bills, his mom will not be leaving his side. With that, she will need all of the help she can get to cover expenses helping with bills. Anything is appreciated. Please pray for this family."

The driver of the pickup truck, Alyssa Shepherd, 24, of rural Rochester, was charged with three counts of reckless homicide and one count of passing a school bus with its safety arm extended and causing injury. She has since bonded out of jail.
(Several viewers have asked us to confirm that the GoFundMe for the siblings' family is a legitimate way to donate. Elgin Ingle, the uncle of the three children, shared the GoFundMe to his Facebook page with the following message: "This is my niece and two nephews. My brother and his fiancee really need all the help and prayers they can get.")
Decals are being made that say #M.A.X. Strong. (These are the initials of the three siblings who were killed in the crash). These can be purchased from this Facebook business page belonging to Amanda Felda. All proceeds will go to the two families whose children were hurt or killed Tuesday morning.
