It’s every parent’s worst nightmare — the phone rings and you find out that one of your children has been in a serious automobile accident. You scramble to find out what you can do, if they are ok and how it could have been avoided.

And then you say a prayer.

This was likely the scenario for country superstar Toby Keith on July 4, when he would have received the news that his daughter, Krystal Keith, and her family had been involved in a terrible car accident caused by a drunk driver. Krystal shared details of the accident on her socials on July 7.

“Our 4th turned pretty horrific,” wrote Krystal, who released her debut album “Whiskey & Lace” back in 2013. “Hensley, Drew and I were on the way to watch fireworks on the 4th. A drunk driver almost took the lives of my entire family. We all survived the wreck but it’s gonna take some time to heal. Keep us in your prayers. Hug your babies and spouses tight. DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE.”

The pictures show just how close Krystal, husband Drew and their little daughter Hensley were to not making it out alive. We pray for not only the physical, but the mental well being of everyone involved in this tragic incident.
