An Accident Part 4


Continued from yesterday.

Darren had collapsed in the street. Luke ran. The customers–in fact Luke’s employers–took off in their Corvette. A Good Samaritan called 911. Darren was taken to hospital by ambulance, were he woke up from a diabetic coma caused by exhaustion and poor insulin management. He was discharged the next day with a stern warning from the emergency physician.

Luke was breached for violation of his probation conditions. His treatment team connected with his siblings’ caregivers in Manitoba who were very willing to assume custody of Luke. In collaboration with the youth justice department and the crown prosecutor, Luke was then transported out of the province as alternative to more incarceration, with Luke’s consent, as well as his mother’s. He remains in his aunt and uncle’s care in Manitoba.
