LSU Family Needs Help After Car Accident In South Africa

BATON ROUGE - Tragedy hit the LSU soccer program last week as junior midfielder Kellie Murphy, her brother Brian Murphy and her sister Nicole Murphy were struck by a car in South Africa, where they were attending the 2010 FIFA World Cup with their family. As a result of the accident, Kellie, a rising junior on the LSU soccer team, sustained a mild concussion; Brian, a sophomore at LSU, was left in critical condition in a hospital in South Africa; and Nicole, a medical student, was killed instantly.

The Murphy family is incurring extremely high expenses as they work to bring their injured and deceased children home to Lafayette, where they reside. In particular, there are concerns about health-care and repatriation costs, as it is unclear what will be covered by the family's insurance policy, since they were in another country when the accident took place.

For those who would like to make a contribution to assist the Murphy family, a fund has been set up through Home Bank. The account number for the Murphy Family Support Fund is 2057873802. A check can be dropped off at any Home Bank location (account number must be included) or can be mailed to: Home Bank Account #: 2057873802 Attn: Murphy Family Support Fund P.O. Box 81459 Lafayette, LA 70598
