They were in a serious car accident last night, but were able to receive medical help IMMEDIATELY. Freddie was released from the hospital, and Alyssa will be in surgery for a few more hours. She was cognitive pre-surgery, and all of her tests were perfect. Both Freddie and Alyssa's families are heading there now, and they are in the best hands.I will keep you guys updated. Send over as many prayers and well-wishes as you can."
