“At this moment I ask everyone to keep the victims and the families of the people involved in this tragic accident in your thoughts and prayers,” Ward writes on his Facebook page. “My injuries will heal and my life will continue. Unfortunately, there are others that weren’t as lucky.

The focus needs to be on them. I do not want my involvement in this to take the emphasis off of those that are suffering a great deal more than myself. Please hold your children, family, and friends as close as possible and remember that things can change in one instant. Thank you again for your support.” source
