I wanted to post this touching and powerful report from my friend Robert Kovacik from NBC 4 News here in Los Angeles. Robert and NBC News captured the emotion of this horrific accident. BTW....this was the top "featured news clip" from AOL News on Tuesday night....

Reality has sunk in. The pain at California Baptist University is too great to watch for many tonight.
The eyes of the community are starting to focus on the grief and shock that is seen on the young faces of those who lived through this hellish nightmare.
CBU is praying today. This small religious educational institution nestled in the heart of the Inland Empire is now in mourning.
Many of the injured student athlete survivors of the horrific multi-car crash on Interstate 395 in the Sierra Nevada's began to arrive back on the CBU campus Tuesday evening.
Cheerleading Coach Wendy Rice was killed in the crash, and at least 6 other Cal Baptist University athletes are in hospitals in either serious, critical or fair conditions with various serious injuries. Some may not survive, so far three people have died from this crash and as many as 17 total were injured.
Friends, family, faculty, well wishers and a flock of local and national media crews greeted the wounded warriors, who are now attempting to come to grips of the magnitude of what they actually witnessed and lived through .
I will be posting more video news clips. Also, if anyone who survived this crash has personal photos from the scene, please feel free to send them to my email at RREconomy@aol.com.
Lets keep the victims of this crash in our Thoughts and Prayers.
