Blind Survivors of Littleton Bus Stop Tragedy Share Story
Last week we talked about three Colorado Center for the Blind students who were hit by a car while waiting at a Littleton bus stop. The two youngest of the three survived, but 47 year-old David Nanny died from accident injuries that day.
Deb Stanley, a news producer for ABC7’s the Denver Channel, describes the accident:
Georgie Sydnor and Carissa Ubersox were waiting at the bus stop in Littleton on Friday morning when a 21-year-old driver lost control of her SUV and plowed into the students, police said. Dave Nanney, 47, died from massive injuries…
The name of the driver of the SUV is not being released while police investigate. It’s believed the driver lost control on the icy road while attempting to turn at the intersection of West Mineral Avenue and South Utica Street.
This week, the two survivors have spoken to the media for the first time since the car accident. Here is the video report from 9News in Denver:
“The Healing Fund” has been set up at Colorado Business Bank in Nanney’s honor. Donations will fund grief counselors and other healing needs at the Colorado Center for the Blind, as well as support Nanney’s family. Those who wish to contribute to the fund can send their donations to:

Once again, we are reminded that just a little ice can do a lot of damage. Please take extra care driving around Colorado this winter.
