My good friend, Assistant Chief Jim Gladwell, and his beautiful wife were on their way to Gettysburg this past week when they were involved in a horrific accident in Cambridge MD. The story is they were stopped at a red light when a vehicle struck them from behind causing them to hit the vehicle in front of them. The impact than shoved them through the intersection and beyond. It was said the driver causing the accident never touched his brakes and that he struck Jimmy at hi-way speed.
Mrs. Gladwell is currently hospitalized and is about 12 weeks pregnant with their first child. Jim suffered a back injury but I am told he was treated and released.
I ask for you prayers for Jimmy and his family. They are wonderful folks and great friends.
I will update this post as I get more info. Thank You! for your thoughts and prayers.
