Alyssa Lone, 19, of Frankfort has been volunteering with the Frankfort Fire Department for a couple of years now, but just in the last couple of months prior to her accident, became a certified firefighter.
Late on the night of September 6th, a pickup truck was hit by a semi at the intersection of US131 and M186 near Fife Lake. Alyssa was in the passenger seat of that pickup, the side where the semi initially made contact. The collision left Lone critically injured.
She was initially in the ICU at Munson Medical Center before being moved to a rehabilitation center in Muskegon, MI.
Alyssa will need extensive therapy for many years and her family is already faced with soaring medical bills and travel expenses.
Alyssa continues to make progress in her recovery. She continues to undergo rehabilitation with the help of her doctors and family.
