Cathedral Catholic High coach Will Cunningham and his family held a press conference June 16 to update the public on the family’s recovery following a catastrophic car crash that occurred March 17. The family also expressed their appreciation for the community’s support.

A 30-year-old Santee man, suspected of drunk driving, drove the wrong way on state Route 52 and caused a head-on crash on March 17, killing himself and sending Cunningham’s wife and three of their children, who were in the other vehicle, to the hospital with major injuries.

“This is not a finished project, just an update on how we are doing,” Cunningham said at the June 16 press conference.

“We are trying to get back and are dealing with things most families take for granted, like tying a shoe. By the grace of God, we are humbled and blessed to have everyone still here. Anything is possible with faith. We are blessed to have the support of the Cathedral Catholic community and want to thank all of San Diego, the city of Brawley (Calif.) and well wishers around the country. Tough days are still ahead, but whatever the challenge, we look forward to it.”

  • What were the odds?
    I think we’d all agree that no one should have to worry about being run over by a motor vehicle in their own shower. I’m a world class worrier but until it almost happened, it never occurred to me to worry that a stolen car would crash through our front fence and stop inches from joining me in the master bath. This wasn’t recent, fortunately, but it comprise […]
