On July 22, Zack and Stacy Bates and their children, Izaak and Levi, of Wyoming were involved in a very serious automobile accident on Highway 65 just north of Cedaredge. All four family members were injured, and they lost all their belongings.
Although Zack and the children have been released from the hospital, Stacy Bates is expected to remain at St. Mary's for several weeks.
To assist the family with clothing, general living expenses and upcoming school needs, an account has been stablished at US Bank. Donations for the "Bates Family Fund" may be mailed or dropped off at any US Bank location.
