Local Principal, family in ICU after head on collision
Lexington, SC (WOLO) — About 100 people attended a prayer vigil earlier this afternoon for River Bluff High School principal Jacob Smith and his family.
They were injured in a car accident in Hawaii.
The Lexington 1 school district sent out an email this morning to let employees and students’ families know that the Smiths had been involved in a head on collision.
The family’s pastor says, the family’s injuries are severe enough that the community would want to pray together for their own sense of well-being as well as the family’s.
At Thursday prayer services, Pastor Reeves said quote,
“We need to pray for Bekah in particular, we will keep you updated on their progress as we learn more.”
