Purdue Softball Player Paralyzed

May 23, 2010

Purdue All-American and record-breaking Softball player Liane Horiuchi was riding as a passenger in her teammate Kayla Yates car at 10:30 Friday night May 21st when they crashed into a utility pole near Brookston, Indiana. Two other friends were in the back seat, uninjured. Horiuchi was rushed to the hospital while unconscious for major spleen and pelvic issues, undergoing surgeries. Yates thankfully only suffered from minor head injuries. Unfortunately later today it was announced that Horiuchi is now paralyzed from the waist down. She is a Hawaiian native that transferred from Tennessee to Purdue to accomplish her goals in attending pharmacy school. Please have her in your thoughts and prayers.
