A fundraiser has been announced to help four children injured this week when the van they were riding in was rear ended by a semi-truck in Pryor.

The children and their mother were traveling across Oklahoma Aug. 30 and were sitting at a red light at U.S. 69 and 49th Street when the semi plowed into the back of the van.

The children are identified as Asaad, Sevyn Cali & Reign. Nine-month-old Reign was ejected from the vehicle and 4-year old Sevyn was crushed.

Cali and Asaad only had minor cuts and bruises and were discharged from the hospital Thursday. They will stay at The Ronald McDonald House Charities with their father, who flew in from Albany.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is still investigating the accident.

As of right now, Sevyn and Reign are still hospitalized and Sevyn is still in very critical condition, friends of the family said.

Pamela Dickey, a cousin of the childrens’ father, said she set up the page “strictly to help this family during this very challenging and difficult time.

“Dad will be taking care of all four children and will be solely there to aid Reign and Sevyn in their long recovery ahead.

“In addition this family needs help getting all of the children home safely once discharged , as well as maintaining their needs while staying in The Ronald McDonald house. It’s going to be a long road to recovery for Sevyn and Reign as they continue fighting for their lives in the ICU.”
