Lillian and Amanda Stanwood

A nasty three-car accident Thursday has left a Coupeville family in need.

Amanda Stanwood, and her daughter Lillian, were hit in a head-on collision on Highway 20 in the vicinity of Dugualla Bay after another driver crossed the centerline.

Their car was pinned against the guardrail after the accident, and Amanda was one of three people involved transported to the hospital.

Seaside Spa and Salon owner Aaron Wiley, who is a family friend, posted this earlier today:

 

If you’re from Coupeville and a soccer family, chances are you know the Stanwood’s.

They personally mean a lot to me (Aaron) because they have been like family to my daughter and I since Emma was in diapers.

Their home has been her home away from home whenever she needed it, and our daughters will most certainly be lifelong friends. It’s just that kind of a bond.

Mandi & Lily were in that horrible wreck on North Whidbey this last Thursday. Hit head-on by an uninsured motorist who they think fell asleep at the wheel.

This family is the NICEST family I’ve ever met. They would give anyone the shirt off their backs and every last dime they had if someone was in need.

Mandi’s husband volunteers as a soccer coach and Mandi spends her time taking care of their household and helping all of her friends out when any of us are in a pinch with childcare.

They pour as much as they can into soccer for their daughter because it’s her outlet and is one of the things that has kept this sweet child sane through a terrible couple of years.

They travel off-Island multiple times a week for soccer camps and tournaments.

Now they are without a vehicle and not a lot of hope after this horrific car wreck that they miraculously walked away from … beaten up, cut up, bruised and shaken, but alive ❤️.

The paramedics were astounded they weren’t hurt any more than they were.

Please help them if you can. They need to purchase a car.

Thankfully they have been lent a vehicle to use temporarily from a friend until they can buy their own.

They need the stress taken off.

They may need help with medical bills because it’s unknown right now what their health insurance will cover.

Their car insurance was minimal and they don’t know what, if anything, it will cover to help them replace their car.

These are wonderful people and could really use some community support right now.

Coupeville High School Class of 2021 moms have created a meal train to help the family affected by a fatal car accident earlier this week.

Joey Glendenning, 44, mother of Wolf softball player Lacy McCraw-Shirron, passed away Wednesday from injuries sustained in a head-on collision on Highway 20 near Winterhawk Lane.

The meal train is being spearheaded by Michelle Cernick.

“It’s time for the community to come together and do what we do best, which is help each other out when we need it the most,” she said. “Right now Lacy could use some love and support from her senior class.

“Please do what you can to help her family. They don’t have any allergies and will eat anything that you bring them. They are not picky, just grateful for anything right now.”

Cassidy Kendall

A fundraiser is underway to help an Oak Harbor woman badly injured in a car/pedestrian accident New Year’s Eve.

Cassidy Kendall, 23, was struck by a car while crossing the street in Oregon December 31, and suffered life-threatening injuries.

She broke her ribs, femur, pelvis, and spine, and was put in a medically-induced coma.

In an update Wednesday, her sister, Bailey Pace, detailed what Kendall has faced in the first week of 2021.

The young woman has had multiple surgeries, with a rod inserted to brace her femur, which was broken at the hip joint.

Kendall also had screws, rods, and pins inserted into her neck during spinal surgery, which will limit her mobility in her neck.

After a third surgery to piece her pelvis back together, with plates, screws, and bolts inserted, she is on a ventilation machine.

One huge positive is Kendall is out of the coma, and is able to understand and respond to commands to do things such as wiggle her toes and squeeze hands.

It’s expected she will be in a wheelchair for a minimum of three months, and will need therapy to recover the ability to swallow and walk.

Her sister has started a GoFundMe to aid Kendall and her husband, Oak Wendler, during this time.

“Thank you for all your prayers, love, and help through all of this. We are so grateful for all your support,” Pace said. “Cassidy truly has touched the lives of so many!”

A two-vehicle T-bone crash Monday right outside of Freeland claimed the life of a member of the South Whidbey High School Class of 2021.

Taylor Daniels, who played for the Falcon soccer team, was airlifted to Harborview, where he passed away.

Older brother Nevin Daniels was transported to Providence, where he is recovering. A pregnant passenger was taken to Whidbey Health for a precautionary evaluation.

The accident happened at the intersection of Highway 525 and Bush Point Road just after 5 PM.

Friends of the Daniels family have set up a GoFundMe to aid them.

“We know we can’t take this unimaginable pain away, but we can help take some of the financial burden away,” wrote organizer Holly Sharp-Hezel.

“This is a time when family and friends make the difference. Let’s come together and show these wonderful people how much we love them, how much we care and support them.

“Funeral costs should not be on their mind right now, especially when they have another son to take care of during his recovery.”
