    RT @jessIcan12: Please pray for UT senior soccer player Kylie Doniak who was hit by a drunk driver last night and in a coma

    I didn't see a '12 Texas thread, and maybe this should be the '12 Texas thread. If so, mods can change title.

    But rough news to hear towards the beginning of this calendar year.

    From The Daily Texan, Feb 3 @ 6:44 PM

    “Texas soccer player Kylie Doniak is in critical condition after a hit-and-run accident in downtown Austin early Friday morning.

    UT Athletics confirmed the pedestrian critically injured after the incident was Doniak and 22-year-old Nicholas Colunga, is currently in police custody on charges in connection to the incident. Witnesses reported Colunga hit a group of pedestrians, and alcohol is suspected to be involved.

    Witnesses told the APD they saw Doniak and a group of pedestrians walking north in the crosswalk on San Jacinto crossing Eighth Street, when the driver of a Chevy Impala ran a red light. The car then struck three pedestrians, two women and a man, and left the scene said Austin police spokeswoman, Veneza Aguinaga. The other woman was treated at the scene and the man suffered non-life threatening injuries. Aguinaga said Doniak and the man were taken to University Medical Center Brackenridge.

    A motorcyclist who saw the incident followed the driver for several blocks. The suspect eventually stopped, exited his car, and was then tackled by the motorcyclist. Police arrived soon after and detained him.

    The driver, Colunga, faces charges of driving while intoxicated and failure to stop and render aid, Aguinaga said.”

    Truly sad … she, and her family, are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Kylie's younger sister, Makenzy, is our Slammers teammate. Before the accident Mak told us Kylie wore a ring that said “Everything is possible when you walk by faith”. When we heard about the accident we had bracelets made that read “KD15” on one side and “Walk by Faith” on the other side. Please join us in support of Kylie by wearing a “Walk by Faith” bracelet as a constant reminder to keep Kylie in your thoughts and prayers. Together let us support Kylie in her courageous battle to one day soon….Walk by Faith.

    We are requesting a $5 donation per bracelet with 100% of all sales going to Kylie’s Wells Fargo donation account (#2860066170).

    If anybody can recover from this, bet on Kylie.

    Kylie flew to California on Friday to continue her recovery.

    I had the privilege of two short conversations with Kylie after soccer games in Boulder and San Antonio. I couldn't explain it then, but I walked away totally impressed. Had there been a third conversation, she might have turned me into a Longhorn fan. Now that I know more about her, I better understand why I was impressed.

    I'm not much of a praying person, so I have no right to ask others to be, but if there is ever a situation that calls for it, this is one.

    Faith, family, prayers, friends, outstanding medical and rehab and therapy people, her fitness before the accident ... all have come together, and while the road to recovery may be long, she's on it.
