When Beth Haun posted on her Facebook page asking her friends and family to donate blood for her mother, Ruth Marie Haun, who had just been in a serious car accident, she said she couldn’t believe the response.
According to Marsh Regional Blood Center totals, 83 people donated to the center the first week following the two-car accident on Love Street in Erwin on Feb. 6, in which Ruth suffered serious injuries.
The extent of Ruth’s injuries included a cracked and fractured pelvis, cracked kneecaps, crushed ankles, broken femurs, broken tibias and fibulas and 11 broken ribs.
