CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A hefty reward is now up for grabs in the crash that seriously injured two Chester siblings. 19-year-old Taylor Fee was moved out of ICU, but neither he nor his 18-year-old sister, Jessica will be home for Christmas.
Taylor needs round the clock supervision. His parents have been running between hospital rooms.
Police haven't said much about the crash that has now moved neighbors and the community to help in any way they can including a $1,000 reward for answers.
Taylor's mom said her son has a traumatic brain injury. He can't be left alone in his hospital room fearing any fall could make things worse.
His sister Jessica is in the room next to his in a lot of pain. Doctors found more broken bones.
She's also distraught over the crash last Thursday on Old Bermuda Hundred Road. The accident moved a neighbor to offer a thousand dollar reward. He wants to remain anonymous, but told me by phone time is of the essence in a case like this.
A case that has the Chester community talking and taking action.
Sibley's Bar-B-Q sponsored Jessica in her pageant run for Miss Chesterfield County Fair this year. She won, but her chance at the state competition may be hanging in the balance.
"She loves to come down here and enjoy with her parents. Everybody in her family loves it and we want to do something nice for her," said Sibley's owner, Charlie Sibley.
Sibley's is donating a Christmas dinner to the Fees.
"A lot on that family, so anything we can do to make it easier at Christmastime we want to do it," said Sibley.
Answers are few and far between.
Suzanne Fee said her children were forced off the road by a vehicle passing another in the opposite direction. Taylor was knocked unconscious when his truck hit a tree.
Despite numerous broken bones, Jessica crawled to the roadside for help. She's just now starting physical therapy.
"Hopefully everything works out. Something like that is devastating at Christmas, anytime, but right at Christmas it seems even worse," said Sibley.
Jessica and Taylor's parents are exhausted running back and forth between the two hospital rooms. They're grateful for all the prayers and well wishes.
