Family of Accident Victim Seeks Help from Coastal Bend Residents

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A local mother is asking the public for help after her daughter was injured in a car accident on Ocean Drive that put her in the hospital's intensive care unit.

Janice Barnett said her daughter Nina came down from Houston to visit family. Her boyfriend drove her down here in a car that he told Nina he had gotten from a car dealer friend. It turned out that wasn't the truth, and on Monday, the couple got into a wreck on Ocean Drive.

That accident left Nina in ICU and forced the early delivery of her baby.

"I'm seriously in need of help," Barnett said. "I'm seriously asking the city of Corpus Christi to love me, help me love my daughter, pray for my daughter's recovery and pray for me and my family to endure this."

Barnett said Nina has a laundry list of injuries and has still has not awakened from her ordeal. Meanwhile, her baby boy, Mason Alexander, was delivered at the hospital and is doing fine.

The boyfriend, Stephen Allie, was arrested by the Corpus Christi Police Department on the stolen car charge and on a warrant out of Florida for grand theft.

The two were driving down Ocean Drive on Monday when somehow Allie lost control of the Nissan Maxima and crashed into a light pole. Barnett is not sure if the two were arguing at the time, but she said her daughter is not to blame for all of this.

Either way, there is a big price to pay at the hospital and the months of rehab Nina is expected to have to go through. That is why the family is asking for help.

"I'm not working. I don't have a means of transportation, so I guess any advice, any monetary gifts they could give to help us get through this, as far as going back and forth to the hospital right now," Barnett said. "Also, like I said, with the financial bill for my daughter. The medical bills for my daughter. I have no insurance. She does not have insurance."

If you want to help the Barnett family, you can call them at 361-774-7666.

Barnett said her daughter Nina graduated from Flour Bluff High School and has been going to college, and that she is a good girl who got mixed up with the wrong guy.
