A cross was burned in the yard of a Smith County man after what his family is referring to as a vicious hate crime occurred. Family members say that Craig Wilson was beaten with brass knuckles and shotMore >>
A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
Lucas and Amber need the community's help to win a wheelchair accessible van to get them to doctors appointments, visit family they haven't seen in years, or the Toledo Zoo or the mall.
"I'm sure they are bored, laying at home all day. I'm sure they would like to go places and do fun things like anybody else would," said mother Kathy Houstin.
Lucas and Amber only get out of the house twice a week, for what they call "day-hab," when they are picked up by a bus.
That service is not always available, and the family doesn't have the money to buy a van of their own.
"A higher functioning client can get into a car or you could life them to get them in there. But because they have both had spinal surgery, they need to be in a special handicapped van that can accommodate both electrical chairs," said Robin Birks, Lucas and Amber's nurse.
