A Guthrie family was involved in a serious vehicle accident with a large crop sprayer last week in Minnesota. Now, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are asking their fans for prayers and financial support as they try to help a badly injured family friend.
On Friday, Dylan and Dianna Fleshman were driving to her family’s house in Hayfield, Minnesota for dinner when they collided with a large crop sprayer a half-mile from the family’s home.
Dylan and their two-month old son Vincent came away from the accident without injury. However, Dianna received major head trauma and a fractured skull. She is currently in critical condition and on maximum life support.
According to an update on the GoFundMe website, doctors have declared Dianna 100 percent brain-dead.

Please join us in helping bless the Fleshman family during their time of need. Thank you for your help and prayers, may God bless you and your family for your generosity.”
