Hardship Hits Lubbock Family Again

Hardship hits the family of a Lubbock police officer for the third time this year.

Thirteen-year-old Chelsea Childers was in stable condition Monday night.  Chelsea broke her back in a weekend car accident.

You'll remember it was her father, Corporal Scott Childers, who suffered serious injuries in a motorcycle accident last month. Then just last week, police arrested a woman for stealing from a benefit fund intended to help the Childers family.

A family spokesperson says Chelsea broke her back on Saturday. We're told she was riding with friends in Lubbock County, when the car crashed, Chelsea was thrown from the car.

This comes a month after Corporal Childers lost control of his motorcycle on a trip to New Mexico.  Childers was not wearing a helmet, but is improving at University Medical Center.

Chelsea is at Covenant Medical Center, and both face long and expensive recoveries.

"Just Scott's situation is going to be a major financial burden for them. He's looking at another month in the hospital at least, and continual rehab from there on. We're trying to do everything we can to help out, and we're hoping to get some help from outside the police department also," Sergeant Clay Winters said. 

A fund set up to assist Corporal Childers will now be shared with his daughter.

We alerted you to a theft from that fund last week, but police assure us the account is safe with the arrest of 32-year-old Lorianne Sauceda.  She's charged with stealing between $500 and $1,500 from the account.

Sergeant Winters says the stolen money has been returned.  If you would like to help the family, donations can be made at WesTex Federal Credit Union.

Winters says the department and the family greatly appreciate the community's support.
