Kenidee Hyde, 17, crashed her car on Wednesday, June 19, just four miles north of the Utah border. Many benefits have been held in her honor since the crash. She came home last Friday.

“She’s pretty banged up,” her mother, Corene Hyde, said. “But she’s doing better.”

Kenidee Hyde suffered multiple head traumas, fractures and an injured spleen and lung after she went off the road, overcorrected and rolled her car. She was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from her 2000 Jimmy.

“She’s a very lucky girl,” Corene said. “She will have therapy to repair her face from multiple fractures.

“Her lungs and spleen are also pretty banged up. She has multiple rib fractures too.”

After coming home from the hospital her mother reported she will have a tharapist working with her twice a week. She still has long way to go, she added.’

The Preston High School soccer team, which Kenidee is a part of, had a car wash and a bake sale to raise money to help cover hospital costs. The car wash raised just under $3,000.

“The community has been amazing,” Hyde said. “The community has rallied around her. She’s had a lot of calls and visitors. The soccer team gave her a soccer ball with a lot of signatures on it.”

Bear River Crossfit also held a fundraising activity and the Owl Club will be helping by selling wrist bands during rodeo weekend and at the fair.

“We would like to thank all those who have made an effort to help our family,” Corene said.

“We appreciate all of the thoughts and concern everyone has shown our family.”

An account at Ireland Bank has also been opened for donations.
