Since our first short report on a major crash just east of West Seattle last Wednesday, friends and schoolmates of the driver who was seriously hurt, 16-year-old Chief Sealth High School student Coreena Wolford, have been posting updates and tributes in the comment section (read them starting here). Among other things, friends posted that she was on her way to Concord Elementary in South Park that day, for the final session of a program in which she was volunteering to read to younger students. Her name and condition haven’t been made public until now, but friends have just forwarded the link to a Caring Bridge website that has been set up as the official source of information about how she’s doing, with all postings approved by Coreena’s family: You can see the site here. We’ve been asking for any information we can share about a fund to help with her recovery, and her friends tell us that information should be available soon. Meantime, the new website says she was scheduled for more surgery this afternoon.
