HUNTSVILLE, Texas (June 10, 2015) — A firefighter responded to head-on collision and found his wife and young son among the victims.

According to KTRK, the accident happened on Saturday afternoon.

“It’s my family. My wife was laying there on the ground,” firefighter Aaron Van Riper said. “I don’t know how either one of them lived. There was nothing left of that car.”

Both his wife, Amber, and son, Jonathan, 7, were airlifted to the hospital. But suffered multiple fractures.

Van Riper told KTRK his wife went through nine hours of surgery on Sunday to repair a broken pelvis.

Both his wife and son are expected to be in wheelchairs temporarily as they recover.

It is unclear if anyone else was injured in the accident.
