Friends Save Local Family, Raise Money to Help Even More

Posted: Updated:

Becky Baker's friends and coworkers saved her life Saturday after a car accident and continue to help even after she has gone home from the hospital.

She was in a head-on crash putting her, her husband and her four month old daughter in critical condition.

The driver of an oncoming car lost control, hitting the Baker family's car head-on on M-115 near 22 Mile in Osceola County.

It was her friends and coworkers that worked to save their lives as they arrived in critical condition at Munson Medical Center in Traverse City.

Tonight, Becky, Travis and their daughter Lilah remain in the hospital.

In the meantime, their friends and family went to the Internet to raise money for them.

So far, more than $11,000 has been raised to help with the entire family's medical bills

9&10 News' Eric Lloyd and photojournalist Jeff Blevins spoke to one of her coworkers today and have more details.
