In the first week school was in session, a 15-tear-old sophomore was struck by a vehicle while returning from lunch at Ellison High School in Killeen. Morgan Wood was flown to Scott and White where she underwent emergency brain surgery in order to reduce swelling and bleeding.

She had major injuries and is in critical condition. After her procedures, Morgan was placed in a coma, which was to allow her body to heal. She is awake and a source tells us she is able to follow people with her eyes, however, she is not out of the woods yet.

Family and friends have joined together in creating a crowdfunding campaign on as medical bills continue to pile up. The response from the local community has been nothing short of heartwarming but they still need a lot of help.
