LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Samantha Cardenas, a 20-year-old from Lubbock, is still in the hospital after a Dec. 13 crash that sent her to the hospital. That same crash also claimed the life of 30-year-old Eloy Arenas of Brownfield.

Since the crash Cardenas has had six surgeries and is expected to have more, according to the GoFundMe account. Cardenas, a student at Sul Ross State University in Alpine, was coming home for the Christmas break that night and was almost home.

It is also at Sul Ross that Cardenas was a member of the soccer team. 

The goal for the GoFundMe account is $5,000.
