ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- We are learning more about the conditions of the survivors of last month's crash in Liverpool.

A facebook page has been set up to update friends, family and the community about the conditions Lance Patterson, 35, Olivia Patterson, 10, Sophia Patterson, 2, and Justin Root, 14.

On November 24, Sheriff's deputies say Muhammad Baqir was driving under the influence of drugs when his vehicle swerved and hit the vehicle the Pattersons were driving in.

Meagan Patterson, 34, was killed in the crash. According the Facebook page, Lance Patterson remains hospitalized with multiple broken bones and fractures. Olivia is in serious condition in the Pediatric ICU and is paralyzed from the waist down.

Sophia sustained a broken arm and a cut above her eye, and has been released from the hospital. The page also says Justin Root has undergone several surgeries and is back in the hospital for complications from his injuries after being released.

Friends and family have set up a fund to help the family with their medical needs.
