COLLIER COUNTY, Fla - A Naples family is fighting for their lives after a head on collision late Thursday night in Lehigh Acres. Now, family and friends are pulling together to help the Naples firefighter, his wife and their three daughters.
Corey and Kristina Adamski were on their way home from a 4th of July barbeque with their daughters when their lives changed forever. "I was probably four cars back and I saw a ton of smoke," says Fred Plocinski, a Bonita Springs firefighter who was leaving the same party. "I knew there was an accident."
Officials say Robert Bridwell was driving in the wrong lane on State Road 82 in Lehigh Acres when he hit the Adamski's SUV head on. Plocinski rushed to help.
"The collision was so hard when they hit," says Plocinski. "Part of the glass from one of the windshields was 50 feet away from the accident."
Friends say Kristina was eight months pregnant at the time of the crash. She was taken to the hospital where she had an emergency C-section giving birth to her third daughter, who is also now fighting for her life.
"I couldn't believe that something so devastating happened to such a loving family," says Maria Sloboda, a longtime friend of Kristina's.
Sloboda and Kaihle Brokke have known Kristina since middle school. They say the 26 year old mother of three played in the band at Barron Collier and was captain of the dance team.
"She has one of the biggest hearts that I've ever known a person to have," sasy Brokke. "She would drop anything to help anybody out. Same as Corey."
They set up a fund for the Adamski's and in just hours saw an outpouring of support. If you would like to help out you can donate here. Http://www.gofundme.com/AdamskiFamily
