“After the completion of my round today I was informed my wife Ellie, our children Dash and Lucy, and friend Katie were involved in a traffic incident near our RV. Their car was hit by a bus and Ellie was taken to the hospital for precautionary measures. Thankfully everyone is now resting comfortably and Ellie has been released. They will all be monitored in the coming days. We want to thank the emergency services for hospital personnel for their assistance.”
