Praying for a miracle tonight as a 3 year old Robertson County girl fights for her life.
Fox 17's Erika Kurre tells us she's a victim of a fatal head-on collision on Highway 41 last night that killed her grandmother and the driver of the other car as well.
The three year old clings to life as her mother undergoes surgery.
According to Springfield Police, Megan Bouge was driving her mother and two children Wyncie and two week old Emmett home from dinner.
That's when another driver, Mandricus Darden, crossed the 5-lane highway and crashed into them head-on.
Megan's husband Brandon had just returned to work from paternity leave.
The family's pastor says Brandon Bouge has put his trust in God during this difficult time.
Brandon and Megan Bouge will likely be out of work for quite some time as their family recovers.
Friends have created a fund to help with medical and living expenses.
You can make a donation at any Regions Bank to the "Bouge Family Assistance Fund."
